No words can ever describe the visual genius of Takato Yamamoto. And even if that's just an excuse because my eyes hurt like hell since this is the 4th blog I posted today, it's still the truth, damnit!

Great minds at the verge of total madness sweet enlightenment like Trevor Brown and Substrom have long been dedicating their visual attention and thoughts to him, so I hope you don't mind me redirecting you to their sites for now.

If you live in Rome - where you're already blessed with some of the greatest art this planet has to offer - you should under no circumstances miss Yamamoto's Japanese Decadence show opening at Mondo Bizzarro tomorrow.

It'll remain on show until November 6, 2008. Further details below.

And for those who can't make it, Editions Treville has recently published Rib of a Hermaphrodite - Yamamoto's 5th monograph.
