51 Darkly Erotic Fairy Tales of the Italian Artist Simone Pinna

Winged beauties adorned with feelers and equipped with insect-like limbs. Simone Pinna’s graphite drawings evoke a fairy-tale world full of strong sexual references and often with a darker subtext.

Erotic Fairies

The hybrid, mainly female figures (he names them ‘erotic fairies‘) are alternately playful and vulnerable. They inhabit a world where phallus-shaped mushrooms and other ‘sensual’ crops are recurring ingredients, becoming part of their erotic fantasies.

Right Emotion

In an earlier interview the passionate Italian artist explains that he has to induce the right emotion for himself in order to draw. Lines, shades, lights, dynamics, forms, are all the elements that arise instinctively. Therefore his drawings are labor-intensive. The drawing entitled ‘Holes-Hotel ‘ (Fig.1) for instance took him over a month to complete.

H.R. Giger

An important influence on Pinna is the work of the Swiss artist H.R Giger (1940-2014), known for the portrayal of human bodies and machines in bleak, complementary relationships, and famous for his Oscar-winning creation of the Alien creature in the film of the same name.

Beastly Elements

While Pinna’s work is erotically charged, it’s not necessarily sexually arousing (at least in my opinion) because of the added beastly elements. My personal preference is for Pinna’s dark works such as the fairy tied up on the bed (Fig.3) or the desperate naked girl in the attic (Fig.5). On the other hand, who can resist a rabbit-woman intensely suckling one of her feet (Fig.10)?

The mixture of innocent fairytale and wings and organic penises, sensual pleasure and macabre create a kind of gothic eroticism. Not all of his images are sensual but they have the feeling of a dream walking in a mysterious dark wood, pardon the pun.

Thanks Carmelo. Yes, gothic eroticism is a good description!
