Manga artist Shintaro Kago’s style has been called “fashionable paranoia”. He subverts the form in his provocative, occasionally grotesque narratives. Many of his manga have strongly satirical overtones, and deal with grotesque subjects such as extreme sex, scatology and body modification. In this tale, in particular, the typical panels become three-dimension vessels, from which his characters break out and manipulate.

It’s been way too long los angeles, I’m sorry I had to leave in the first place, but you were really annoying the shit out of me, but I forgive you , I’m sorry I left you when you needed me most, ive seen these horrible atrocious art shows you’ve been subject to, I seen these wacked out gimmicky douchey group shows and art walks you been sexually and mentally harassed by , and I’m here to tell you,I’m coming soon, and maybe you’ll appreciate me and not take me for granted this time . lets make the dysfunction work for us, ok ? I promise to try harder if you try harder. It’s been 6 long years since my last show here when you fucked me and I left you. I was still doing shit like this last time I saw you .

in that time I seen things, I’ve heard things, I’ve felt things I’ve never felt before, I been hitching and bitching all over the globe , I been to Japanese jails, African jungles, Chinese torture chambers, the whitehouse, and to all 7 levels of hell and Back .
this summer In april 2010 I will have my first solo art show in BEVERLY HILLS CALIFORNIA with Lazarides .I will take all my love all my hate all my pain all my rage, all my suffering and all my skills and experience ive collected over the years , and bring it to your doorstep, those who collect my stuff, know that the waitlist is over, it’s done, I burned the commission page, there’s no more comissions, those that wait to see if they should buy a painting or not, and then get pissed when it’s sold out, here it is now , a solid 2 and half month early warning, this will be my last show in a long time, I have no plans or contracts for any other shows after this, I will go away for a long time after this, so I’m being nice and telling you all this shit now, don’t come crying to me later because I wont be here. los angeles I’m coming home and when I come this time, I’m gonna come harder than I ever have before.
