Posted November 04, 2017 09:04:48 Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano has made a name for himself in the cartoon genre with his series of “bizarre” drawings, which depict the lives of ordinary people.
In one particularly striking piece, Amano depicts a man in his twenties sitting in a cafe surrounded by a collection of colourful figurines and other strange objects.
It’s one of several examples of the artist’s work, which have become an international sensation, showing off his ability to combine a playful style with realistic depictions of everyday life.
“It’s a strange thing to be in a room full of strange objects,” Amano said in a recent interview with The Japan Times.
“The strangest thing is to have something that’s not familiar, something that is completely out of place, something so bizarre that it’s like it’s from a fantasy world, and yet it is really real.
It’s a very surreal and unexpected experience.”
As a child, AmanO grew up in a house where his father’s family owned a large property in the country’s northernmost city, Fukuoka.
“We lived in a small house with a small yard, and it was a very normal household,” he said.
“I was always happy and happy with the house, but as soon as my father came home, I felt like it was not normal anymore.”
My parents were very strict, and the house was the last place where I would want to go.
“As an adult, he began his career as a cartoonist, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that he began to create his own works.
He said the style of his work reflected his own personal interests.”
Cartoons are a really interesting form of entertainment because you can’t be too realistic, and there are so many different kinds of art,” he explained.”
Even in Japan, there are things that are very, very exaggerated and bizarre.
“The artist said he started to draw when he was 10 years old, and was drawn to the “realism” of his drawings.”
But in my eyes, I was not able to understand how real life was.
That’s why I decided to try drawing,” he told The Japan News.”
This was my first attempt in drawing, so I’m still trying to understand the art of drawing.
“In 2000, he opened his own studio, in Tokyo’s Tokyo Central district, and started his work on his own, with his first cartoon “Shakuga” set in 1999.
The show, featuring a young girl in a shabby Japanese dress, became a hit and earned Amano an international reputation, but the series never quite caught on with audiences.”
After “Shake-A-Nuke” became a big hit, people started asking me about ‘What’s next for Yoshitakas ‘Shakugan’ series?'” he said, referring to a popular Japanese cartoon series that features a group of teenage girls in various settings.”
Then I started drawing “Tengu”, but that series is a bit more realistic and more realistic than ‘Shake-‘A-nuke’.
“In 2004, the Japanese artist began a series of drawings that would become known as the “JAPANES first-class car cover” series.
The series was based on the Japan Standard Calendar, and depicted a typical day in Japan’s capital city, Tokyo.”
It was very easy to draw, but very challenging to get the viewer to think about the whole experience of the show,” Amanoes art director told The Times.”
The cars driver is dressed in an outfit similar to the ‘normal’ car, and is also carrying a lantern, so it’s the usual kind of character.”
“It was very easy to draw, but very challenging to get the viewer to think about the whole experience of the show,” Amanoes art director told The Times.
Amano’s illustrations are so realistic that they can be seen in many different environments.
“They’re not just the cars parked in the streets, they’re in the street lights, in the city hall, and even in the school grounds,” Amanozaid.
“Sometimes they even appear as children playing in the park.”
He said that the series’ popularity attracted attention from the entertainment industry, and helped bring in other artists to work on the series.
“Artists are very interested in seeing a series like this because of the realism of it,” he added.
“A lot of artists are really interested in realism in cartoons, and so they wanted to draw something that they could draw without thinking.””JAPANS first-year car cover series”The series also won a prestigious award at the 2009 Japanese Cartoon Awards.
“At the time, I had already become a manga artist, so the idea of having a cartoon series like that was very exciting for me
