Yuichi YOKOYAMA

(Born in Miyazaki, 1967. Lives and works in Saitama, Japan)


Yuichi Yokoyama had produced Fine Art works in 1990’s after finished his B.F.A at Musashino Art University with a major in oil painting. Since 2000, Yokoyama shifted his practice to Manga as a medium that allowed him to “draw time.” His Manga famously known as “Neo-Manga” can be characterized with the use of vigorous lines, onomatopoeia, unique characters, and more importantly the depiction of uninterrupted time flow. His representative comics, New Engineering, Travel, NIWA, Baby Boom, The Room of the World Map were translated into various languages and earned a high reputation in the world. Other published work is BABY BOOM FINAL in which the artist reproduced his monochrome Manga images in neon colors.

While a large-scale solo exhibition, “The Complete Neo Manga of YOKOYAMA Yuichi: I draw time” at Kawasaki City Museum, Kanagawa, Japan (2010) marks Yokoyama’s success as an established artist in Japan, the artist has won an international reputation.

He has participated in numerous group exhibitions “Logical Emotion”, Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich, Switzerland (2014) / Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow (MOCAK), Krakow, Poland (2015) / Kunstmuseum Moritzburg Halle (Saale), Land Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany (2015). He also had several solo exhibitions such as “YÛICHI YOKOYAMA: WANDERING THROUGH MAPS, UNE EXPLORATION A TRAVERS LES CARTES”, Pavillon Blanc, Colomiers, France (2014); “YOKOYAMA Yuichi x Surrealism”, Miyazaki Prefectural Art Museum, Japan (2014) and “this is that, touch it.”, Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, Japan (2014). He also worked with HERMÈS for their window display of Isetan Shinjuku Store, Tokyo in 2013.
