Description

I agree with the assumption that ideology is an interested human construct. And it seems very crazy to me that an aesthetic drive can involve such a vital commitment as in the case of this literature genius, Yukio Mishima.

Yuki yearned for an imperial past because of that kind of homophobia that made him despise the lack of virility in men, motivated above all by his sexual preferences. It can be inferred that his fascist inclination derived from that reverie of his, populated by grumpy samurai, ruled by millenary codes of honor and, more importantly, fucking each other with military austerity and vigor. She tried to take Japan to the Middle Ages to fulfill his fantasy and as it did not come out, she got angry and took out her guts. This was Yuki, the greatest genius of Japanese literature of all time.

ROBERTO MAJÁN (Soria, España, 1967)

Roberto Maján is a self-taught artist. He moved to Madrid when he was eighteen and soon began working as an illustrator for various specialised periodicals and publishers, including ExpansiónActualidad EconómicaVogueEl SolEl PaísHealth and Beauty, Anaya, Santillana and Edelvives.

In 2006 he founded Artichoque, a publishing house that released several books illustrated by his own pen, such as Kamasutra (Daniel Gil Editorial Design Award finalist in 2006) and Petronia y la reina bigotuda (shortlisted for the 2007 Visual Prize for Best Children’s Book). That year he received the Fundación Progreso y Cultura Prize for his illustrated book El Diablo y yo, which also won an honourable mention at the Lazarillo Awards.

In his personal artistic production, he parades his consummate skill with brushes and watercolours, depicting mostly human figures with a subtle and adept use of colour and creating textures and glazes to produce an oeuvre of stunning beauty and delicacy. His favourite themes expose and explore human passions, particularly love, sex and food.
