11 Illustrations That Show Strikingly Intimate Moments Between A Couple In Love

This South Korean artist beautifully captures moments of pure affection.

Many artists choose to depict relationships in their work. Some choose to highlight the cute and corny things that happen when you're in love. Others choose to highlight their partner's imperfections as some of their favorite things about them. Some even work on a new drawing every day about their significant other

But South Korean artist Yang Se Eun, who goes by the name Zipcy online, highlights moments of physical contact between a couple in love. In her illustration series Touch, the 29-year-old artist from Seoul portrays intimate scenes between significant others, such as cuddling up with each other in bed, massaging each other's head, and lightly touching each other's fingertips.

While many of the illustrations are certainly sensual in nature, the way the couple looks or touches each other radiates compassion and love rather than just lust. We'd bet anyone in a serious relationship can immediately see themselves in these moments. 

"The flesh and the flesh are in contact," Zipcy wrote about her project. "Though it is merely physical at the moment, at that [same] moment we have the heart falling, floating on the clouds, blood flowing back. This is a mysterious moment when the mood is crossed. It is never [just] a physical contact, but in that very moment, it is something more."
