Toshio Saeki – “Unnen”
Master of the weird and erotic, Toshio Saeki holds his largest solo exhibition to date at NANZUKA gallery in Shibuya. Saeki’s work mixes eroticism, humor and horror in his unique style heavily inspired by traditional shunga – erotic art and yokai – Japanese folk mythology and monsters. He has been widely published and exhibited worldwide since the 1970s garnering a cult following and a legendary status in Japanese underground illustration and beyond. The exhibition will feature new works alongside a selection of Saeki’s original illustrations produced between the 1970s and 1980s. In addition the artist has created a large-scale color mural.
