Ryohei Yamashita

creates digital paintings with the consistent theme of yakudo, which means, translated literally, "full of life and energy." Like the climactic moment in a film, his paintings are iconic, explosive, energetic, and memorable.

Yamashita's unique fisheye lens perspective adds to his works' depth, breadth, and beautiful trajectory lines, creating this dramatic effect of yakudo. Mr. Yamashita started working as a caricaturist when he was a student. In 2002, he became an illustrator based in Yokohama City.

After passing the Digmeout Audition, a rite of passage for many of Japan's young art leaders, he embarked with his theme of Yakudokaninto the art world on a quest to go beyond the realm of illustration.
