The bondage art of Virginia Micagni

I generally don’t flatly endorse artists on my website. Not for lack of adimiration, but simply because there are too many of them and I feel like it would be unjust to highlight the works of a few against the rest. This case however is different.
Virginia Micagni is the person who took up the burden of taking care of my presence on the social networks, promoting ayzad.com and the parties I organize, like the upcomingSadistique. She is also the artist behind the striking picture on the cover of my latest book, Peccati originali, so I guess this mention is more than deserved.

Virginia’s works are a bit different from your usual kinky art. While bondage, domination and fetish imagery are clearly prominent, they are always used as storytelling tools, metaphors for the (often self-imposed) restraints and suffering of the human and feminine condition. The deep rope marks on that cover, in example, come from a series called Stationes cruciatus which focuses on the imperfections of the body and their elaboration. Which doesn’t make her drawings, paintings and photographs any less erotically intriguing – not even when she goes for irony like in a more recent series of oils about contemporary saints.
You can find much more information about the artist and her galleries on her Tumblrblog. If you wish to buy her works you can also check out New Art company, an online art dealer.
