Born in 1957 in the city of Osaka, Japan, photographer Ken-Ichi Murata still lives and works there.His art is a sensational new discovery.
The pretty Japanese girls in his hand-colored black-and-white photographs transport us into the erotic fantasy worlds of a Japanese artist who is inspired by thousand-year-old traditions and sexual rites.
Murata enchants us with nymph-like princesses and half-nude girls in kimonos. Here are stimulating role play and exotic charm in their purest form.
Murata began displaying his art photography at a public exhibition in Tokyo in 1996. It was a huge success and was the first glimpse the work got into the amazing dream world of this most amazing artist.
