About the Artist
Yuichi Yokoyama was born in 1967 in Miyazaki, Japan. After studying oil painting, Yokoyama chose manga as a method of expression to ‘illustrate time’, and his speedy lines and unique characters have represented his work ever since. Many of his works such as “New Engineering”, “Travel”, “NIWA” and “Baby Boom” have been highly acclaimed globally and translated into languages such as English, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian.
