Japanese Manga Artist Suehiro Maruo Takes You To The Dark Side

Japanese manga artist Suehiro Maruo is probably one of the greatest retro-artists working in the manga field today. As compared to the Godfather of Japanese Erotica Toshio Saeki‘s works, Maruo’s illustrations are more violent and graphic, hence falling into the category of “erotic grostesque”. Maruo has been a very quiet and private child since young, as he claims “not to have spoken more than a few words to his parents during the entire youth”. He therefore directed all of his attention into drawing and let the illustrations do the talking. As we can see, majority of Maruo’s works feature deformed human or circus freaks behaving in all sorts of outrageous and ridiculous ways. But these characters are, in fact, a mirror of how human beings are in the real society. No matter how “kawaii” or normal they may seem on the surface, they possess a trait of weird fetish deep inside their heart.
