kenichi yokono (born 1972, Ishikawa, Kanazawa, Japan), the japanese artist, has been getting a lot of attention outside his home country the last couple of years. His work is outstanding and also out of the ordinary because of his chosen media. The obsessive detail of the Japanese artist's woodblocks depict fantastical manga-like urban landscapes, people, and collaged images. Like manga, his images share an apocalyptic eeriness - he calls his work "the horror of everyday life" and "horror pop" - and his restricted palette (he often only uses two colors, usually red and white) makes for arresting images. (Josh Rubin)

The artist lives and works in Kanazawa, Japan
