The Elusive Erotic Drawings of Instagram Sensation Petites Luxures

A buttocks turned red, unfolding bras, a girl with a guy, girls with girls, guys with guys, threesomes, foursomes, pushy hands, a floating arm grabbing between the legs of a female, or a myriad of hands intertwined and entangled across bodies, no intimacy is concealed.

Small Lusts

The fluid black-and-white ink drawings with an occasional color tint (mainly pink) of the enigmatic artist Petites Luxures enrapture many followers of his Instagram account. Over 1.3 million to be precise. Under the moniker “Petites Luxures ” or “Small Lusts” he (until recently, even the artist’s gender was unknown) frequently adds new erotic illustrations to the popular platform since 2014.


His minimalist drawings, the omitted lines, the faceless figures, allow the viewer to fill in the rest thereby enhancing his or her imagination. The attached titles, often a play on words, are occasionally just as puzzling as the maker’s identity.

Bad Grades

What is now known is that he is from Paris and studied applied arts, and has been working as a graphic designer and illustrator for the last 16 years. In an earlier interview with the French magazine Ô Magazine, he said that he got bad grades in school for his nude drawings. Fortunately, this has not discouraged him as his unique nude art now conquers the art world and the public.

Eroticize Everything

About his art Petites Luxures says,’ We can eroticize almost everything in our life, a place, a plate, a color, a visit to the dentist, an hour of the day, the clothes…we can find sex and love everywhere.’ He favors ‘pleasure without ulterior motives or bad feelings,’ because he believes ‘[sex is a] natural need, like eating well.’ Also, the artist prefers to define his drawings as intimate instead of erotic, because this adjective gives a more ‘personal, spontaneous and sincere’ idea of what is presented.
