Erotic artist from Melbourne, Australia who goes by the alias of Baby Voodoo was kind enough to reach out. The sex positive rainbow pop palette screams progression and owns sexuality in a way that I have to admire. We were granted an interview from the breakout artist who got their start in 2015.

How did you get your start?
Having been surrounded by art my entire life and forced to go to “boring art galleries” on the weekends as a child, instead of seeing my friends, obviously impacted me. I started drawing, painting, creating when I was pretty young. Creating a business out of what I love is kind of like “just another art project” for me, in a way – super fun but obviously slightly more challenging.

Who is your biggest influence?
Artistically? There are too many to name. The photos of Irving Klaw drove my imagination wild before I even knew who he or Bettie Page were. Also the Japanese masters of the old Ukiyo-e style.

You can take three things to a desert island that aren’t your phone. What do you choose?
My partner – for fun and love and so I don’t go stir crazy.
Probably nothing else. I love a challenge and am pretty confident that I’ve watched enough Bear Grills to know how to survive naked and without tech, haha.

Whats your biggest inspiration?
Life and it’s experiences, seeing other people in their creative element, internet culture, the sex-positivity movement…. Hello Kitty!

What was your first tape or CD?
TAPE: Billie Jean – Michael Jackson
CD: Elephunk – The Black Eyed Peas! Such a good album.

Biggie or Tupac?
Tupac! My teenage friendship group was all about 90s rap, rnb and hip hop.

How has art influenced your world view?
The best thing about art is the fact that there’s no “right” or “wrong” answer. Art is subjective.
Life is art. Art is life.

What’s your favorite documentary?
There’s not one in particular, but I do love those 6 hour long conspiracy ones on YouTube, haha. Learning about the consciousness, human behaviours, history and all that really gets me going.

Puppies vs. Kitties?
Kitties. I have three. Though I have been contemplating adding a puppy to the brood.

What’s the cutest animal on the planet?
Kitties! Or those red panda foxes with the bushy tails!

What do you think was the biggest turning point in your life?
The past 3-4 years have seen my life turn 360 degrees, and I do believe change can only be exponential. Being emancipated from societal “rules” while still having a respect for why they are there, no longer feeling like I have to “fit in”…. being comfortable within myself. Mind, body, spirit.

What’s coming up next?
Art, inevitably. Expanding my skills and pushing myself to grow more as a person and as an artist. To connect more with people globally who are into the same stuff as me, rather than feeling boxed in here in Melbourne. Also to try to help more people to understand being proud of your body and owning your sexuality is only human nature. 🙂
