At my request, “Luxje” gives an introduction
“Okay, well. So I’m Luxje, 31, live in Rotterdam. I once graduated in Digital Media Design, but that mainly concerns web design. And I did a year of art school … and failed miserably.
I’ve been drawing for a long time, but started drawing bdsm-related things around age 26. Partly due to my own interest and a friend who runs a bondage foundation. This has motivated and supported me a lot. For example, I drew and designed posters for his events. Then I started drawing further to make things I wanted to see more myself. Less black and white, less very serious, but sometimes so. But mostly emotion, diversity.
Bodypositivity is also a very important aspect in my work. Things that inspire me… Nature is very beautiful to me. Organic forms. People in general, their emotions, their drive. Japanese bondage too, I just think it’s a very beautiful form of bondage. The patterns, the emotions it brings, the colors. “
Below you will find some examples of Luxje’s work:
