NSFW: Erotic Gore…Suehiro Maruo’s Ero Guro art

Ero Guro? What’s that shit, you say? Well, it’s an art that combines erotica (not pornography, just erotica) with elements of macabre and grotesque, which explains its other name, “erotico-grotesque.” It comes in many forms and shapes, like novels, short stories, or movies, but today we are taking interest in the visual arts. Suehiro Maruo is a mangaka internationally recognized for its work as an ero guro artist.

With works like Imomushi, Bindzume no jigoku, or Mr. Arashi’s Amazing Freak Show, he created himself an inspired universe influenced by surrealism, German expressionism, Edgar Poe, Georges Bataille, and Otto Dix paintings. From horrific murders by Japanese serial killers to erotic tortures, each scene he depicts has a sense of fearful beauty in its own way. It’s not all blood and sex.

Perversion is a guilty pleasure for some, and the feeling you’ll get from him might remind you of the fascinating disgust you felt when you first read Marquis de Sade. If you want suffering, you will get it; if you want crude, you will get it; if you want macabre drawings and the embodiment of darkness, guess what? You will get it. Who said manga was for children?

    While I think it’s important to be familiar with Japanese art, which includes, Ero Guro Nansensu….this isn’t well researched (suprise) and misses the importance of the movement. Just showing the works without context is fruitless.

    The term itself is an example of wasei-eigo, a Japanese combination of English words or abbreviated words: ero from “ero(tic)”, guro from “gro(tesque)”, and nansensu from “nonsense”.

    And the hipsters are eating this stuff up like worms, like they do with everything else as soon as it gets popular on the internet. 🙁 It’s a double-edged sword when someone writes an article about something interesting. We can’t have nice things.
