Young painter Akira Yamaguchi has taken Japan's art world by storm. His work combines the techniques of classical Japanese painting with the observant eye of a modern-day Peter Breughel and the humor and draftsmanship of a manga cartoonist. Yamaguchi's landscapes of the imagination, compressions of time and space, and quixotic human/machine figures combine Eastern and Western sensibilities and techniques into artwork that transcends exoticism.

This beautiful volume collects the artist's work from the past decade, including several pieces never before published, allowing Western readers to share the delight of Japanese critics and audiences in this fresh, new view of the world. Also included are an introduction by art historian Yuji Yamashita, 80 pages of full-color illustrative plates, and a magnifying glass for enhanced viewing of painting details.
