SEPP of VIENNA

Sepp Engelmaier
comes from the northern part of Lower Austria.
He studied graphic art at the "Graphische" in Vienna and works also with photography,
lives as graphic designer and artist in Vienna.
”Since my early childhood, drawing has been my biggest passion and strength. While in kindergarten it was still cars and the fascination of the 1950’s; it was during the time of Catholic boarding school that scenes of suffering at the crucifixion of Christ, surrounded by muscular Roman soldiers, prevailed in my study books.

Being a late-bloomer, I came out at 24, when I quickly found my sexual preference to be leather and S&M.

For friends of the LMC Vienna, as well as other international leather clubs and organizations, as Folsom Europe, ECMC - European Conference of Motorcycle Clubs, Tom of Finland Foundation, New York City Gay Men Chorus, Mr.B. Amsterdam, RoB London, Spexter Munich etc. I have produced numerous works of art. I have created a small, exclusive Fine-Art-Edition of my works especially for admirers of men, bears, leather, rubber, uniforms, and S&M. Original prints are produced in a very limited number, printed on heavy handmade paper (format ca. 38 x 56 cm / 15 in x 22 in) and can also be purchased as single pieces.

Also available are handsigned posters, greeting cards, an anniversary- and a perpetual calendar, as well as extensive catalog detailing my work. Definitely a nice gift for friends, masters, slaves or just yourself.”

The man behind the images
of SEPP of VIENNA.

On bicycle again, the motorbike are still in the garage, the grave new planted, my body need more work outs, the Saab new summer tire, the men like to be coddled, the life is going on and I enjoy my life!

After Easter 2021 we had like planted new our family crypt, but a digger on the ground on March 31, let us to act on impulse, with painful result for my feet. The long stone from granite slipped over my instep and generate huge hematoma. After three times at the doctor and also x-ray, tetanus shot, I went to the emergency hospital for three days. it's now more than a month ago and doesn't had healed full.

2021

The wound on my chest had healed good, just a small bulg still stay.

In my nipples I had staves from silicon because the operation. After I had problems to put my rings there again. and also I like to have bigger and thicker ones. That was a painful action to do for a couple of days!

February 2021 I did had participate via video conference in a research project for men over 65+ "Forschungsprojekt Männer 65+" from the university of Graz in cooperation with Center for Inter-American Studies.

A camera team at April 2021 had made a home Interview and story themed "Homosexualität in Austria legal since 50 years", also about my Gay Male Erotic Art. I'm curious about it.

From 2020 December 9 till 2021 January 6 I was at HerzReha in Bad Ischl with strict Corona terms. Breakfast 06:45, exercises, trainings, work outs, walks, nordic walking and somthing more, 11:30 lunch, 17:00 dinner, it was a good and constructive way in a new life. Fortunately there is "Zauner", a famous patisserie in Ischl! ;-)

Gernot, a friend had visit me and we had a great walk by ice and snow to "Hinteren Langbarthsee" near Ebensee.

I'm sure, the mirror lie. ;-)))

But suddenly everything has changed. Not only Corona had changed our life.

At beginn of Juli 2020 I went into the hospital for a heart check. I had must do this one year earlier, my internist doctor had say. But I did had feel good.

The result, 3-way heart-bypass operation on open heart. Four times the operation was canceled, but finally the operation on August 18th was successful done.

Back in life!

After Franks death I would to do our plan by myself.

A new birth.
Sepp and Frank.

June 2011. In recent weeks, my life has changed abruptly. My husband Frank died on 26th of May suddenly and unexpectedly at the hotel during his working mission in Tyrol. After a heart muscle inflammation, he was in treatment and would have 16th of June had an additional check in the hospital in Vienna.

In my home town Maissau in Lower Austria found at 11th of June the adoption and urn burial in the crypt instead of my family. At the funeral there were over 250 friends from near and far, from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Eindhoven, Cologne, Zurich, etc., came and it rained a sea of roses. From the flood of responses to the death of my husband, I´m overwhelmed!

Frank was born in Dresden and we met in Vienna in 1996 and 1997, he moved in with me. On 1st December 2010 we got married. In August 2011 we wanted to make a big party with family and friends.

Heart and suddenly everything is different. Heart of a sudden, two lives have changed.
How beautiful we had come up with the 115 +1 - Frank would have been on 12.08.2011 forties, I was still in the Sixtieth, fifteen years of combined "roller coaster" and finally almost a year "partnered". The fate decided otherwise.
Memories. Be it the bottle of "Krug"; that gave us my cousin and his wife so touching gift on the occasion of our partnering, which is in the kitchen cupboard where I gather every morning my breakfast dishes, or when I go into the garage and Franks bike is without license plate now next to my place, and there are still many moments each day of remembrance. The bed beside me is empty - still empty - unused.
And somehow I think what did I do, write thank you emails, is that it? When the movie is over? Is not it just a bad nightmare? No, it´s just "shit". You meet many friends, all concerned are touching, but no one can replace the one, the beloved son of a bitch.
This is one that makes itself allegations. You could not even tell one last time. Not "goodbye", not "I love you" say. Or as we used to sometimes "I love you nevertheless!".
Somebody said: What should I have done wrong that had happened. I´ve done something wrong, except that I´ve loved a man as he was?

Only our neighbor, a photographer was there and has kept the whole thing in pictures.
