Hello! I’m Stella Polaris, an artist living in Paris.I've drawn pretty much since I discovered how to hold a pencil, and in 2014 I decided to actually, finally, focus on my art.
My drawings are elegantly sinister, intricate pictures, shaded in hundreds of tiny dots, exploring the erotic and the weird. I'm inspired by literature, gothic aesthetics, fetish and kink (especially shibari, the art of Japanese bondage). And bats. Bats are amazing.
What can you expect when supporting me?
1. MORE ART. Because I'll have more time to do it, and also because I'll want to make it worth your support.
2. You'll be able to follow the creative process much more closely than just through my snapshots on Instagram. You will get access to my inspirations, behind-the-scene pictures I wouldn't usually show, maybe even videos.
3. You can also expect my art to go in new, unexpected directions. Different sizes. Different mediums. I have ideas for expanding my art outside of paper... Of course, you will be the first to know about any new venture!
For more on what could be done with your support, please check my Goals (on the left side of the page.) I hope you’ll like what you see, and that you’ll want to help these goals come to life.
Lastly, supporting artists today is a radical act. It’s rejecting selfishness and utilitarianism, it's saying that beauty and imagination are important. It’s a political gesture, more than ever. If you support me (or other artists!), you'll also get the warm feeling of knowing that you are actually living according to your values - and what could be better than that?
