Internet Weekly Report - Art And Culture
I'm not big fan of Japanese erotic art unless the quality of the artwork is outstanding. My favorite work of Shunga, Dream of the Fisherman's Wife, is by the master Japanese Ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. I'm also quite impressed by the exceptional quality of the modern paintings of Yuji Moriguchi, which I found via Blog About. Unlike the disturbing sadistic tentacle images of Japanese Hentai books and anime, the women in these depictions seem to be in a state of erotic ecstasy with their octopus lovers. Whatever the underlying psychology is behind these images, I have to blame Captain Beefheart and his Neon Meate Dream Of A Octafish song from Trout Mask Replica for my warped mind!
Update 07-21-2008: I found a few more octopus themed works at the Rin Nadeshico (see below).
Update 08-28-2009: I added Old Octopus toy paintings (below) and updated the Rin Nadeshico URLs.
Update 08-31-2009: Octopii -- Can't live with em' can't live without 'em
