(W/A/CA) Yuichi Yokoyama
Yokoyama Yuichi, critically acclaimed for his gekiga ('dramatic pictures') comics further pushes the boundaries of what comics can do with Outdoors. The acclaimed artist has a clear fixation with sound and time and an unbelievable eye for bringing such abstract concepts to life in panel form. Yokoyama uncannily shows the passing of time, suggesting that we should simply see things without labelling them. If he were a musician, he would be John Cage.
