English artist Trevor Brown who currently resides in Japan focuses his disturbing artwork on BDSM and other fetish themes. It is clear that his cultural surroundings greatly influence his artwork through his inclusion of Japanese popular culture. Many of his art pieces feature a young Japanese girl either as the aggressor or the receiver of violent sexual punishment.

At times, Brown's artwork can be hard to stomach because of the nature of the models. The innocent young Japanese women in these artworks are being brutally penalized, and seeing something like that happen to these childlike images is tough. However, Trevor Brown does an excellent job of revealing the seedy underbelly of the BDSM community and sheds light on these dark brutal sexual arts.
