Tattoo boy, Meiji era, 2009 by Hideki Koh

Hideki Koh is a master at capturing the beauty and mystery of the Japanese male, and we are happy to show his work in an exhibition. His works display young Japanese men in both subtle and highly erotic situations, using historical features such as tattoos and traditional costume to create a truly Japanese feel. With an extensive career in illustration, he has published work since 1970, as was published in Japans first gay magazine Barazoku. Drawing in pencil, Mr. Koh’s work contrasts the colour of tattoos and clothe against monotone skin.

We are excited to feature some new works of Mr. Koh in our upcoming exhibition for the Sydney Mardis Gras 2010 visual arts program, ‘Oh! Kinky desu ga?’.  All of the images shown here will be displayed at the exhibition and will be for sale, as well as others. Get in early as these are sure to be popular. If you are interested in any of Mr. Koh’s work please send me a message, we deal in all overseas requests for his works.

You can also have a look at Mr. Koh’s website, it is all in Japanese but does feature some of his incredible illustrations. Enjoy! There are more pictures after the jump.
