NO-Way in association with Ghostown present Toshio Saeki

NO WAY in collaboration with Ghostown and the Print House Gallery in Dalston present the first ever UK exhibition of works by ‘the Master of Japanese Erotica’, Toshio Saeki.

Born in Miyazaki, Japan, 1945, Toshio Saeki’s extreme and polemical images depict themes of repressed desire, subversive sexual acts, violence, and merge influences from Japanese Surrealism, Shunga, (Japanese Erotic Art from the Medieval period) and Western comics laden with Saeki’s unique black humour and unrestrained, insatiable imagination.

This controversial aspect of Saeki’s work is underpinned by his undeniably significant contributions to contemporary art, both inside Japan, - where he has exhibited prolifically since the 1970s - and internationally, since his European debut in Paris in 1970. ‘Saeki’s artwork is the harmonious synthesis of a perverse vision and an incredible artistic ability, challenging social norms by placing the unconscious in plain view.’ (Juxtapoz)

This will be the first time the 67- year-old artist’s work will be for sale in the UK, the exhibition includes rare edition silkscreen, letterpress and offset prints as well as original ink works, some of which have never been seen outside of Japan.
