A hand slides under lace panties; an ice cream cone melts on warm buttocks; a bra unfolds unpunished. Girls with guys, people alone and unabashed, and threesomes are the fantasies rendered in suggestive black-and-white, published anonymously under the title Petites Luxures, or, "small lusts." All we know of the artist responsible for these works is that they come from Paris and studied applied arts. According to Ô Magazine, the artist recieved bad grades when drawings nudes in school. Now, instead of associating them with eroticism, the artist prefers to define their drawings as intimate, because this adjective gives a more "personal, spontaneous and sincere" idea of what is presented.
"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," the artist says.
Petit Luxures favors "pleasure without ulterior motives or bad feelings," because the artist believes "[sex is a] natural need, like eating well." If Petites Luxures gets censored or removed from Instagram, the adventure continues with the sale of drawings in limited prints, a collection of lingerie and an exhibition in London.
