ーIf I am reborn, I want to be myself again If I fail, I want to become a BrazilianーA magnificent performance performed on a stage that moves from left to right like a 200-page explosive space-time conveyor belt drawn by a neo-manga artist It depicts an explosive space-time where the performance and the loud cheers of the enthusiastic audience intersect. Inspired by a Brazilian festival, this work is a great spectacle that celebrates the origin of the universe, animism, gods, offerings, festivals, and totalitarianism. In this work, we set a rule to add onomatopoeia such as "dododo" and "pakapaka", which is also a feature of Yokoyama's work, to all frames, and put it into practice. You can enjoy it as a stronger Yokoyama world.
Graduated from Musashino Art University in 1990, majoring in oil painting. He used to make fine art, but since 2000 he prefers cartoons as his medium of expression because he can "paint time". Yokoyama's manga, characterized by dashing lines and onomatopoeia, the uninterrupted flow of time and unique characters, is called "neo-manga", and is "New Doboku", "Travel", "NIWA", " Baby Boom”, “World Map Room”, and many other books have been translated and published in countries such as Japan, France, the United States, Italy, Spain, and Russia, and have gained popularity. In addition, high-quality works such as "BABY BOOM FINAL", which reproduces Yokoyama's vividly colored original paintings with plenty of high-concentration fluorescent colors, have been published.
