Bob Kessel has created a print combining ANIME ( Astroboy ) and KAIDAN (Japanese ghost story) a genre of Japanese wood block prints. This kind of chicanery is what you come to expect from Bob Kessel, like his picture combining HELLO KITTY with EDVARD MUNCH’S “THE SCREAM”.
The print titled, “ASTRO BOY KAIDAN” is available as a signed and numbered limited edition print. Contact Bob Kessel for pricing and availability.

Astro Boy (鉄腕アトム Tetsuwan Atomu, lit. “Mighty Atom”) is a Japanese manga series and television program first broadcast in Japan from 1963 to 1966. The story follows the adventures of a fictional robot named Astro Boy and a selection of other characters along the way.

Astro Boy is the first Japanese television series that embodied the aesthetic that later became known as anime. It originated as a manga comic series started in 1951 by Osamu Tezuka, who is known as the “god of manga”. For a time Astro Boy enjoyed a level of popularity in Japan equivalent to Disney’s Mickey Mouse.

EROTIC ART by Bob Kessel
Jul 9th, 2010 by admin

Shunga (春画) is a Japanese term for erotic art. Most shunga are a type of ukiyo-e, usually executed in woodblock print format. Translated literally, the Japanese word shunga means picture of spring; “spring” is a common euphemism for sex. In the Edo period it was enjoyed by rich and poor, men and women, and despite being out of favour with the shogunate, carried very little stigma.

Almost all ukiyo-e artists made shunga at some point in their careers, including Hokusai, Utamaro, Harunobu, Eisen, Saeshi, Shigenobu, Issho and Moronobu, and it did not detract from their prestige as artists.

The pictures are available as limited edition original fine art prints, signed and numbered by the artist.
