Araki: Monstrous Paradise

This art publication, PS Art Project #11 by Araki, named Monstrous Paradise, was presented in Moscow, December 7th, 2018.

Nobuyoshi Araki builds a jungle, a playful wilderness beset with as much danger as seduction, as much pain as pleasure, as much death as life. His photographs tap into the sensual beauty of nature that is ever shadowed by the reality of death. Skin comes to resemble the surface of a leaf, lips the blossom of a flower – bright colours that suggest a kind of ecstasy that embodies itself through a joyful dance.
