Takato Yamamoto

I'm awfully surprised that I haven't blogged about Takato Yamamoto yet.  He's one of my favorite Japanese illustrators of all time.  Rendering macabre apparitions in beautifully dark surroundings causes the viewer to feel in some sort of twilight, mystical, and even ghostly themselves.  Much of Yamamoto's artwork is highly erotic ie. wrapped phallic and bonded women.  One may think this may be tasteless and down right dirty, but Yamamoto indubitably has respect for human anatomy.  He beguilingly portrays the body showing much appreciation.  Check out Juxtapoz for an interview!
