Welcome to mitchmen gateway

Welcome to mitchmen.com, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.

This is my permanent gateway site.
I usually post here once a month, art and photos in praise of male beauty, strictly vanilla.
There's a link in the sidebar to a small public gallery of vanilla drawings by me (gallery last updated Feb 2019).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

You can find my more adventurous work via my regular blog
(where I show my own pictures mixed with articles on other gay artists and images that excite me).

There's a 'Gallery Hub' tab at that blog which has onward links to:-
- All the official mitchmen galleries,
- The mitchmen mailing list (for the latest pictures and stories)
- The permanent mitchmen archive at Adonis Male.

I welcome comments from visitors but please avoid adult references,
I can't approve remarks which are not consistent with the vanilla format of this site
and unfortunately I can't edit your contributions!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (Jun 2020).

Marine Hero

"Koinoshiranami" by Naomichi Okutsu

This marvellous image reaches deep into all sorts of Japanese artistic and cultural traditions and yet is so modern and global in feel and appeal. A beautiful, refined invocation of masculinity.

Google tells me the title means 'whitecap of love',
but I suspect something went missing in that translation.

Really an excellent piece. Tensioned, elegant, exquisitely composed. As you mention, it's unusual to see something that is so distinctly modern that carries all the definitive elements of Classical Japanese Art. Even to the Fundoshi which ats to the eroticism but in a muted way. Reminds me of a wood cut, "The Great Wave of Kanagawa." The figure could be imposed over that and it would make an equally powerful image.
