Nakid Magazine / by Aaron Levi Simic

Nakid Magazine is full of seduction: naked bodies tantalise us through its sexually-charged pages, whilst keeping its pulse on whats hot. They've managed to tap into the current zeitgeist of social media and have gained nearly 500K Instagram followers in just under two years - pushing them to the forefront of Instagram's coolest curators. 

Working as an International Contributor gives me the freedom to discover new talent to showcase for their digital and print editions. I have never really viewed art or fashion as black and white and I've always merged them together. For me, the best artists and designers are usually multi-disciplined and are influenced by different mediums. I enjoy finding new artists across different social media platforms.  Since I've been at Nakid, I've really come to understand my own work better and what I want to achieve through my art. I have a couple of articles that I'm currently working on and one coming out in their next print issue. Here are the first three digital articles I've done for them: 

HEDONISTIC HUES: SAGA SIG 

Saga Sig

Saga Sig

I interviewed the amazingly talented Saga for Nakid. Saga is one of those photographers that has magic running through her work and her photos look like the aftermath of a hedonistic 70s party: soft colours, intimate portraits and captured off-guard moments. To see more of Saga's work, visit her website and to read my interview with her, click here.

UNEARTHED GEM: JOANNE BURKE

I'm obsessed with the delicate pieces inspired by ancient imagery and mythological creatures found in Joanne Burke's jewellery. My favourite country to visit is Italy because I love the ancient ruins of Rome and Pompeii and the homoerotic marble found in Florence. Burke manages to capture this lure in her beautiful pieces. To see more of her jewellery and my article for Nakid, click here.

ACID TRIP: JOHN GRAHAM

John Graham's work is definitely NSFW (not safe for work) but that's beauty of it. His work is an unfiltered exploration of sexual perversions and political statements. I imagine his work is what a sex dream whilst having an acid trip would look like. To view my interview with him, click here. Just don't let your boss see!
