Pachu M. Torres is an artist based in Spain, addicted to black coffee and specializing in erotic art. His work focuses on the synesthesia of pleasure and colors, BDSM and female passion. You can find his art on the social media and many magazines like ‘PLAYBOY’.
Horror Sleaze Trash: First off, I’d like to thank you for taking time out of your schedule to talk to Horror Sleaze Trash. I’ve been following you on tumblr for a while and I’m such a fan of your art!
Pachu M. Torres: Thank you! I’m glad you like my art that way, and even more to have this conversation with you.
HST: When did you first begin creating such sexy images?
Pachu: I became interested in drawing erotic illustrations after I had my first sexual experiences at 14-years-old (1999, more or less). I remember that my classmates and friends liked my illustrations and they bought many of them from me or asked for other things hahaha.
HST: That’s a unique way to make money at 14! How do you feel your art has changed and developed over the years?
Pachu: Many factors have caused my art to change over the years, and I’m aware of it: first of all, I focused my art on the eroticism. This was due to the success of this designs online 6 years ago. I shared them in a time when I was working in a national Spanish Newspaper (ABC), where I was doing other kind of illustrations (portraits, superheroes, cartoons, etc.), but as soon as I shared an erotic sketch on Instagram, it went viral (and after the success, Instagram disabled that account, of course). So I started sharing my erotic designs and being more and more open with my own tastes and sexual interests. At this point, they can be considered like a daily diary hahaha. But one of the constants in my art it’s that I don’t like to be explicit, but rather, suggestive; there’s the real power of my illustrations. So, over this 6 years I have a greater assertiveness on the strokes with the brush (due to a greater experience), I risk more with digital colors and their combinations and the compositions are more elaborated.
HST: Do you have any other kinds of art or hobbies that you like to indulge in?
Pachu: I like to write. In fact, my studies were specialized in Spanish Language and Literature. I wrote many poems and little histories that, if someday I have time, I’ll illustrate to make a book with them. Outside of my creativity, I’m an intense movie addict; my favorite genres are horror, mystery, and road movies, but if it’s history and it’s good, I’ll like it. Also books, video games, museums…
HST: Okay, here’s a personal question. Do you indulge in any.. activities like the ones we see in your art? Are you into anything kinky?
Pachu: Yes! “The dirtier, the better,” as they say. As I told you, my illustrations can be considered like a daily diary with all the kinky games you see in there. It’s all about giving and receiving pleasure, eliminating limits and taboos, and constantly experimenting.
HST: That’s hot. I agree that it’s important for people to explore and to give and receive pleasure. It’s funny how sex has become so taboo in today’s culture when it’s such a natural part of life.
Pachu: I agree!
HST: Do you have any other projects that you’re working on right now?
Pachu: I am continuing with my regular works online, the commissions, collaborations with magazines, etc. But this year (2018), I’m going to try to publish a book and also explore the possibility of a clothing line.
HST: Ooo, that’s very cool. You’ll have to keep us posted!
Pachu: I definitely will.
HST: What is your favorite movie or book?
Pachu: The choice for my favorite movie is between ‘Paris-Texas’ (Wim Wenders) and ‘Mulholland Drive’ (David Lynch). Two masterpieces! And my favorite book, ‘Lila Says’ (Chimo).
HST: What about your favorite superhero, since everyone is so superhero obsessed these days?
Pachu: Batman – the only one able to kick the ass of every other superhero and villain! Also, the best superhero comic-books are about his character – ‘Year One’, ‘Dark Knight Returns’, ‘Arkham Asylum’. The best superhero movies are also his.
HST: Well, thank you so much for talking to us! It’s been a pleasure getting to know you better – the man behind the smutty images, haha. We can’t wait to see more of your art in the future! Talk about hot! Where can we find you and connect with you online? Social media? Website?
