After studying oil painting at an art university, Yokoyama began to draw manga as a medium that best suited his form of expression. To date, he has produced many manga pieces including, “New Engineering”, “Travel”, “NIWA”, “Outdoor”, and “Baby Boom”, which has gained high acclaim both in and out of Japan. Yuichi Yokoyama’s manga, which he describes as “drawing time”, is a clear departure from common story form manga. Dialog is sparse and onomatopoeias such as “do do do do” and “wa-” are boldly used. In an atmosphere that is uncanny but arrtactive, cool characters freely move around with a sense of speed. This unique expression that Yokohama himself describes as “neo-manga” has easily oversome the limits of a two dimensional media to superbly draw “time” and “space”. His work brings fresh surprises and excitement to the viewer and has continued to have great impact extending beyound the genre.
Yokoyama created this artwork right in front of an audience in his exhibition, “All Documentation on Neo Manga: I’m Drawing the Time”, at Kawasaki City Museum. This piece is based on a proof copy of his book “BBF (Baby Boom Final)”, which comes with this artwork. Yokoyama added lines, pasted pieces and drew characters on each sheet in this series, for which has created a total of 100 patterns. Each artwork is unique and shows his fantastic world of creation.
This artwork comes with Yokoyama’s book “BBF (Baby Boom Final)”.
