Night Daffodils

Infernal Japanese Erotica.

Night Daffodils

Takato Yamamoto puts intimate universes between life and death on her bed sheets. Great love meets gloomy chimeras under the moonlight as if your bedroom were in the family vault. Genital trees, a flying eye, schoolgirls tied together with ropes, and dead lovers enchanted in the traditions of yaoi* manga. Yamamoto paints sensual night between wine, and blood where a knife is only a step apart from a kiss, and that step is formed by whirlwinds of passion.

Takato Yamamoto was born in Akita prefecture (Japan) in 1960. After graduating from the painting department of the Tokyo Zokei University, he experimented with the Ukiyo-e Pop style. He further refined and developed that style to create his “Heisei Esthiticism” style. His first exhibition was held in Tokyo, in 1998.
