Mayumi International is proud to be joining the 2009 Mardis Gras festival in Sydney. We are presenting Boys Life, an exhibition of gay Japanese artists. From manga to erotic, pop to hardcore, each artwork depicts Japanese gay life from the Edo period to the pop culture of the Shinjuku streets. Featuring gay manga illustrators, magazine photographers and 'Kawaii' erotic sculptures.

The exhibition features artists who have never exhibited in Australia before, with each artist presenting new works of art. All the exhibiting artists are professional gay artists whose work has been published in Japan and around the world, including Gengoroh Tagame, a well known and widely published gay erotic artist. This type of group exhibition rarely, if ever, occurs in Japan, where gay culture is firmly in the underground.

Get a taste of a Japanese boys life!
