赤 Akai is Sarah Thursday's 2019 project on the seven sins, a series where the red ropes symbolise bondage to a certain sin.
I wanted to defy the norms of how people always relate the idea of lust to a female body, thus I drew up a boy instead. Inspired by the art of Shibari, a japanese bondage art, Lust is a beautiful boy hanging off an arcade crane. His kimono and tattoos are filled with snake details, as snakes are often representative of lust.
Made with thick canvas material, with inner lining, finished with a black zip closure.
Measures at a good size of 20cm by 26cm. Great for daily necessities, cosmetics, ipad mini and portable charger etc
Printed with heat-press printing, thus the artwork is exact and is washable.
