The electrifying, erotic, fetish fantasy art of Japanese illustrator Pater Sato  

Pater Sato (born, Yoshinori Sato) is a Japanese artist, living in New York, who is most famous for his sleek, erotic, sci-fi inspired airbrush art of the late 1970s and early 80s. His art, like that of Patrick Nagel, is iconic to the era.

As a commerical artist, Sato's art appeared in advertisments, magazines and on album covers. If you were/are into disco, and loved "Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc., he did both the cover for that album, titled "Mouth to Mouth," and the previous album, "Pucker Up." Below.

An example of some of Sato's finest, fetish art was published in the January 1980 Penthouse magazine in a series entitled "SatoMasochism." Images were accopanied by erotic literary quotes. So, herewith, those images. (This issue of Penthouse is apparently for sale on Ebay.)
