The brilliance of Suehiro Maruo

It was years ago that I first stumbled upon the work of Japanese illustrator Suehiro Maruo and I was immediately captivated by his whimsically grotesque, violently erotic, nightmarish artwork.

Suehiro has been illustrating since age 17, at 26 his first manga anthology, Rose Colored Monster, was published in Japan. Since then, he has illustrated numerous novels, including; Lunatic Lovers,  Ultra- Gash Inferno, The Laughing Vampire, and Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show. Mr. Maruos work has been featured in magazines worldwide such as Garo, Juxtapoz and Beautiful Decay.

Now please enjoy the works of this extremely talented artist!
