Yoskay Yamamoto

Here is another artist which just fills me with inspiration, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. I took these images from the 2009 collection but please and have a look at the rest of the site here and you should follow his blogspot too. You should take a look at the other work there because there are not just paintings to fall in love with.
I think these are utterly enchanting.

Born and raised in Toba, Japan, Yoskay Yamamoto 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.
