Art Crush: Apollonia Saintclair

Apollonia Saintclair, an artist whose primary focus is black and white erotic illustrations, creates work that is sexy, seductive and at times disturbing. Each piece consists of surreal, unexpected details that makes her art reminiscent of both our most pleasurable and most frightening dreams. Emotion is often shown through the facial expressions of her beautiful subjects.

Some women are captured with their mouths gaping open and eyes rolling back in a state of ecstasy in settings varying from cars to forests. Others, however, are caught in much darker and twisted contexts (we’re talking nuns having a threesome sort of dark and twisted). Her illustrations manipulate the eye by turning simple details into a dirty quirk – a bottle of beer spilled onto a naked woman’s chest immediately leads the wandering mind elsewhere.

“Ink is my blood. I draw for my own sake and for your pleasure. A long-time resident of the Old World, I split my time between the kitchen and my studio.” Apollonia Saintclair’s mysterious statement on her art only draws the spectator deeper in the world of her work.
