SADAO HASEGAWA
page I
the early works

JAPANESE ARTIST, 1945 - 1999, in the tradition of Japanese male erotic art.
THIS IS probably the most extensive collection of Sadao Hasegava's works you'll find anywhere, 160 paintings and drawings. The images are corrected for photo/scan colour-casts and some reproduction errors.
 
SOMEWHERE on these pages I promised to show you examples of Sadao Hasegawa's art, and here it is!
I have a tendency to make everything I do into a project, and true to my nature I did it here too. I already had a largish collection of Sadao Hasegawa images and decided to make it complete - or as complete as I could. I trawled the art galleries of the world and I think I got nearly all of his publicly available works. To that end I thank 'Jeune' and Matt & Andrej Koymasky, who helped top-off the collection. Personally I like his tattoo and romantic work best, but I'm not going to sort or select, I'll bring you willy-nilly all I got - then you can choose your own favourites.
 
WIKIPEDIA says: Sadao Hasegawa, 1945 - 1999, was a prominent Japanese graphic artist specializing in male erotica. His work is notable for superb technical skills, elaborate fantastic settings (occasionally reminiscent of William Blake), and for incorporating Japanese, Indian, South-East Asian and African mythology. While focusing on depictions of muscular male physique, Hasegawa often turns to extreme sexual situations, bondage and SM themes, which, in the context of his stylized fantasy world, attain a nearly sacral intensity.

SADAO HASEGAWA was born in a small town in the north of Japan. He was an introspective boy who had few friends and found his greatest joy in nature. Later he found the same joy in the myths and legends of Africa, India, Thailand and various places in south-east Asia. He channeled his multiple experiences and his unique perception of the beauty and mystery of male sexuality and erotica into his works. Sadao Hasegawa saw no inconsistency in mixing together the African mask, the Thai nature spirit and the details of Japanese domination and bondage.
