Vox by Matteo De Longis


VOX is an original raphic concept artbook that combines musical instruments, women, and electric colors.



I thought that the art styles of many of the images were creative and well executed. I do, however, have a problem with the amount of female nudity present. It was almost as if it was on every page. I wanted to enjoy this artbook but I just found myself feeling increasingly repulsed as I continued through the book.


2/5 Stars

I received this from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. If there was not as much nudity to the extent it is currently at the point of being both vulgar and sexist I would have found it more enjoyable. Also, despite the artistry being creative, the topics of sex and rock n' roll is not.

[ARTBOOK] Takato Yamamoto by Takato Yamamoto

Takato Yamamoto


Takato Yamamoto by Takato Yamamoto


MUST GET THIS BOOK! And every artbook by this talented artist. His art is just so breathtaking and full of possibilities.

      An intro/review found on the internet:

There’s much that’s superficially familiar in Takato Yamamoto’s art—“Boy’s Love” tableaux with fey young men in various states of undress mooning over each other, then the perennial Japanese obsession with naked women bound by ropes. But closer examination reveals a degree of finesse and imagination that elevates his work away from the porn ghetto into the rarified realm of Decadence (as if those favourite Symbolist themes of Saint Sebastian [above] and Salomé [below] weren’t enough of a clue). For a start the drawing style is a great amalgam of influences from Beardsley through to Harry Clarke by way of the finest Edwardian pornographer, Franz von Bayros. Then there’s the curious details of severed heads, claws, sundry bones and eyeballs which decorate the otherwise florid arrangements supporting the figures. So far there don’t appear to have been any books of Takato Yamamoto’s work produced in the west and it’s possible that the sexual content and grotesquery limits that possibility. But you can some galleries here, here and here. His official site is mostly Japanese and has to be navigated from an interior page since there seems to be a file missing from the index.

There's two others which I like very much but can't risk posting it here. Both has a male tied to a post with arrows all over his body and there's another one with a male and female entwined with egg shell covering them. Actually most of the artwork was just as mesmerizing and hypnotic to me despite it's somewhat grotesque nature.

Please go to these links for more amazing artworks by Takato Yamamoto. Do be warned that some might find these images offensive due to its disturbing nature, so be careful when viewing it:
