Self-taught as an artist, Tatiana von Tauber paints mostly in oils, celebrating sexuality in bold lines and bright colours. Critics might comment that her perfect breasts and permanently-erect cocks are the archetypal material of pornographic fantasy, but at the same time her large-scale in-your-face canvases are a celebration of the artist’s own belief in the right to have such fantasies, and where appropriate to try some of them out.

Living and working in the deep south of the USA, Tatiana has found that illiberal responses to her work have become increasingly vocal, and like other erotic artists has found the channels for her work and discussions ever harder to navigate. She is determined, however, not to be censored and silenced, and connects through her website and mailing list with a growing network of like-minded spirits.
