New print release.

“Mushiburo (steam bath)”

Senju once again taps into his more than 20 years of experience as a tattooer of Irezumi, the traditional Japanese body suit tattoo. In this recent painting, he is exploring the beautiful simplicity in the motif of “hanafubuki”, the scattering of cherry blossoms in the wind.

“Mushiburo” is just one in an ongoing series of paintings using Irezumi as a theme. Human skin decorated like the finest Kyoto brocade carries with it a sense of sensuality  and eroticism.

36 Views Of Mount Fuji print series

Nearly 200 years after Katsushika Hokusai published his legendary woodblock print series Fugaku Sanjūrokkei” ( 36 views of Mt Fuji ), contemporary shunga artist Senju is now beginning to release his sensual print series bearing the same title. Influenced by Shunga, Ukiyo-eShin Hanga and Kuchi-e prints, Senju returns to more explicit erotic imagery. It’s a celebration of lust, intimacy and Japanese culture.
