Jave Yoshimoto creates brilliantly colored gouache paintings that infuse traditional Japanese prints with contemporary depictions of modern disasters. He entices his viewers with stunning, colored-block images and captures their undivided attention with poignant depictions of destruction, both natural and manmade. He works in a graphic style reminiscent of Japanese Manga, loading his work with the saturated imagery and emotion often associated with modern-day media coverage of such events. Born in Japan to Chinese parents, but raised in America, Yoshimoto often explores the convergence of tradition and contemporary society in his work and is influenced by pop culture in America, China, and Japan.
