Sepp Of Vienna is the very popular Austrian artist who is rapidly becoming known as the ‘New Tom Of Finland’ for his amazing gay fetish art. He has shown his art at Darklands Antwerp and so Paul Stag asked him to select 10 images in no particular order that he himself particularly likes or that have a special meaning to him which you can see below. You can find many more images online and follow him on his blog too.
Many of his images are for sale and original prints are produced in a very limited number, printed on heavy handmade paper (format ca. 38 x 56 cm / 15 in x 22 in). Also available are hand signed posters, greeting cards, an anniversary or a perpetual calendar, as well as an extensive catalogue detailing his work. Definitely a nice gift for friends, masters, slaves, your favourite fetish journalist, Vladimir Putin or just yourself.
THE MAN BEHIND SEPP OF VIENNA
aka Sepp Engelmaier comes from the northern part of Lower Austria. He studied graphic art, works also with photography and lives as graphic designer and artist in Vienna. ”Since my early childhood, drawing has been my biggest passion and strength. While in kindergarten it was still cars, the fascination of the 1950’s; it was during the time of Catholic boarding school that scenes of suffering at the crucifixion of Christ, surrounded by muscular Roman soldiers, prevailed in my study books. Being a late-bloomer, I came out at 24, when I quickly found my sexual preference to be leather and S&M. I’m one of the founder of LMC Vienna, leather & motorbike community. For friends of the club, shops, bars, as well as other international leather clubs and organizations, as Folsom Europe, ECMC – European Confederation of Motorcycle Clubs, Tom of Finland Foundation, New York City Gay Men Chorus, Mr.B. Amsterdam, RoB London, Spexter Munich etc. I have create numerous works of art. I’m a artist, active, committed, motorbike and bicycle rider and car fetishist and interested in architecture.”

Motif 49: Cabin No 5 2007
“The Scent of Intimacy!” is the subtitle of this motif – a play on words recalling a very different smelling brand 😉 In this piece of art for the first time I assembled a drawing and a photo. In the background you can see a photo of a public toilet, that I shot in Nuremberg Germany many years ago. Sex in public toilets was a very special kick to me in my life.
