Japanese gay art

hasegawa.jpg

An untitled drawing by Sadao Hasegawa from Japanese Gay Art, an English-language site with a substantial collection of works by Hasegawa and others, all of which are for sale. Examples run the spectrum from Gengoroh Tagame‘s beefcake S&M to Hideki Koh‘s delicate geisha boys. Something for everyone, in other words. There are also artist interviews, and […]

Gekko Hayashi: homoerotics and monsters

gekko1

Needless to say, it’s primarily the homoerotics which concern us here. Gekko Hayashi is the name under which Japanese artist Goji Ishihara (1923–1997) produced his gay erotica, and these examples are among a small handful to be found on the web. Far more common is his Ishihara work which included some spectacular grotesqueries for the […]

The art of Ben Kimura

kimura.jpg

An untitled piece by Ben Kimura (1947–2003), a Japanese artist whose homoerotic works are all very well drawn, if occasionally a little bland. Given a choice, I prefer the aesthetics and imagination of Sadao Hasegawa or Hideki Koh but drawings such as this are certainly sexy enough. Elsewhere on { feuilleton } • The gay […]

Forbidden Colours

mishima1.jpg

Wilhelm von Gloeden‘s version of the Flandrin pose as it appears on the cover of a 1989 Gallimard edition of Forbidden Colours by Yukio Mishima. I included this photograph in the very first posting which examines the recurrence of Flandrin’s Jeune Homme Assis au Bord de la Mer but this is the first time I’ve […]

The art of Goh Mishima, 1924–1989

goh_mishima.jpg

Untitled. The gay artists archive is currently receiving more than twice as many visits as the rest of these pages so here’s a new addition to what is, it should be stressed, only a personal selection, not a definitive catalogue. Goh Mishima (born Tsuyoshi Yoshida) specialised in what everyone seems to call “Yakazuza porn” although […]

The art of Philip Shadbolt

shadbolt.jpg

Lila. I’d intended to feature Philip Shadbolt’s paintings earlier but his site was offline last time I looked. The hiatus was a temporary one which means that the beautiful men, beatific gods and kaleidoscopic mandalas of his Earth and Spirit galleries are available for viewing again. One of these paintings is very aptly used as […]

The art of Hideki Koh

koh1.jpg

Boys in kimonos and shirtless youth are Hideki Koh’s thing and you can see more of these at his site or at Mayumi International. As is all too common, most of the examples shown are painfully small although he has a page of wallpapers. A tip for artists everywhere: we don’t want to steal your […]

Secret Lives of the Samurai

shimizu.jpg

Kiss of Death (2007). From a series of marvellous homoerotic ink drawings by Kenya Shimizu. The artist seems to have no web presence at all, unfortunately, aside from three pages of work for sale at London’s Adonis Art Gallery. Most of the pictures there are hardcore images so if you don’t want to see any […]

The art of Sadao Hasegawa, 1945–1999

hasegawa5.jpg

(No title) from Sadao Hasegawa 01 (1990). It’s good to be able to finish the year with another artistic discovery. I’d not come across Sadao Hasegawa’s work before but this page has an extensive (complete?) selection of his paintings and drawings. This is gay erotica with a twist, being Japanese in origin yet incorporating figures […]
