Modern Japanese Painting
Modern Japanese Painting. American-Japanese artist Yoskay Yamamoto is a self-trained illustrator, whose style is based on a combination of two different cultural urban west art with traditional and mythical Japanese elements. Yoskay Yamamoto was born and raised in Toba, Japan. He moved to the United States at the age of 15. A self-trained illustrator, Yamamoto’s artistic tastes expanded as he fell in love with the urban culture of the West coast. Yamamoto discovered a way to fuse the two different cultural backgrounds together into his work. Yamamoto nostalgically blends pop iconic characters from his new Western home with traditional and mythical Japanese elements, balancing his Asian heritage with urban pop art.
