One of the most important Japanese contemporary illustrators, Toshio Saeki (1945) "is the godfather of Japanese erotica — the one illustrator in the frenetic, oversexed, comics-crazy nation whose imagination outpaces all others." His works combine classic Japanese imagery in very bizarre sexual settings. Samurai or school girls breaking all the imaginable and unimaginable taboos are some of the images he constantly draws. His works have been collected in books such as Chimusi I, Chimusi II (distributed in the US by Last Gasp), and In-Ken-Ka.
"If you look at Saeki’s art outside of its cultural sphere, you may be troubled by its violence." - Robert Crumb.
