“I created a series of drawings and tapestries, to strengthen and deepen my vision within my erotic art, fed by my personal experiences in Los Angeles,” Kosters says. “If with this, I can contribute to people developing personally and sexually, that would be a great outcome.”

All of Kosters’ work brings out optimistic and childlike themes meshed with arousal and devotion. Kosters exclaims his own work to be “outspoken” and “erotic.” Kosters’ visit at the TOM House has really been an extraordinary experience, as he appreciates the rich history of the foundation along with its art-stimulating energy.

“The title reflects on the stigma that sexuality has in our western world, which seems to become more prudish every day. Sexuality can be emotional, spiritual and transcendental, not just dirty, offensive or naughty.”

“I tried to touch all the things in my erotic universe that please, inspire, alarm or excite me. I also tried to answer the question where my interest in the erotic art comes from; I realized it is a deeply rooted fascination; that is simply part of my whole emotional, personal and professional being.”

“In past times Homosexuals had various very soft nicknames marking them as feminine, while Gays nowadays might focus a lot on masculinity themselves. With my projects I strive to embody fluidity, softness and playfulness, instead of thinking too much in stereotypes. Let’s get tender!”
