The Seductive Watercolor Paintings of the Daring Valeria Ko

Like many current young artists, the Moskou-based artist Valeria Ko uses Instagram as her sole platform. Art is like therapy to her, when she draws she feels happy and that is what her paintings radiate. In her work, Valeria explores the many forms of feminine intimacy. For this she uses a sultry color palette in which the portrayed women enjoy their intimacy without restraint. Whether they are alone or with a male partner, they are always in charge.

Real ‘deed’

Despite the strong sensuality of the imagery, she does not show the real ‘deed’. This has allowed her to bypass Instagram censorship but her popular art has also drawn the attention of some pushy men making explicit requests. In an earlier interview she explains,’…when people (we are talking more about men) see the female artist who draws sexual scenes, they think that you are crazy and very open minded in sex in real life. It’s affected my private life a lot. Also, everyday I receive photos of dicks and sexual content in my DM in Instagram.’

Voluptuous Impressionism

But otherwise Valeria Ko’s voluptuous impressionist watercolors are highly appreciated among her followers. She made illustrations for several magazines, already participated in several exhibitions and a couple of years ago made a big mural painting for a cafe in the center of Amsterdam. In other words, an artist to keep an eye on.

Marijn, as usual, another interesting challenge, and another interesting find. I'm always curious when I get an email from you; first thought always is, "What or who did he find this time?" I've mentioned once in a previous post here that I do not appreciate all artists or everything that is posted here, yet, I certainly welcome every single discovery and addition to the Shunga Gallery, as each post no doubt enriches the already unique repository here! There's nothing quite like Shunga Gallery out there. You ask what one's favorite is. Mine definitely is Shunga and classic. There's a quality to it that is mostly unmatched by modern artists, with very rare exceptions (one of them being Senju - but even then, there is that missing quality of the woodblock print.) What might be an interesting discussion and maybe good subject for an in-depth article ihere, s, "What exactly is it that classifies as Shunga?" As far as I am concerned, calling Shunga to even Chinese "spring pictures/春画" is a mistake. Yes, the characters are the same, yet, they are different, in the same irritating way that a lot of people designate anything erotic depicting human intercourse "kamasutra" when listing items on auction sites. I collect erotica in all its forms, from all cultures, all ethnic backgrounds, all ages, when I can add them to my collection, yet, to mix all things, and try to shake them together, a pleasant cocktail does not make! This could be a fascinating topic to discuss. Any additional thoughts anyone?

Thanks a lot you for your plea and suggestion JB. I am delighted that I have aroused your curiosity concerning new discoveries. Although,.the question at the end of the article covers a slightly wider area, namely the entire erotic art your suggestion 'What classifies as shunga?' is certainly an interesting starting point for the forum that we will launch later this year. Thanks again for your contribution JB, We will come back to this topic for sure!
