I am Marijn Kruijff and I started this site for fans and collectors of Asian erotic art (shunga). For the past 16 years we have been collecting and selling traditional Japanese woodblock prints (ukiyo-e) through our first gallery akantiek.nl all over the world.
Due to the increasing amount of interest in shunga over the years I decided to start another platform solely dedicated to this amazing and influential artform (Picasso was an avid fan and collector!). It's my mission to introduce and educate the world on shunga by selecting and offering the best content and pieces on our site!
Are you looking for any specific subjects? Or are you looking for shunga's designed by a specific artist? Are you looking for erotic paintings (Japanese, Chinese, Indian) ? Erotic photographs/pictures? Or are you just looking for background information on shunga? We got it all covered and we´ll add new pieces to our gallery (shop) and new content to our blog weekly.
Where to go now? Just start by downloading my free ebook (in progress). It´s an extensive study on the complete works in shunga of one of the greatest Japanese masters Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849).
