yukio miyashita - © atelier yamanami, christian berst — art brut
Date 1973 —
Country Japan

Born on 1973, living in Shiga Prefecture, Japan.
Has been participating in “Atelier Yamanami” since 1997.

Data management is Yukio’s purpose of life. Carrying an organizer and calculator all the time, he never misses a beat in managing various data ranging from scorebooks of Japan’s professional baseball, win/loss records of Sumo wrestling, work schedule of staff members, to running schedule of the shuttle bus.

Yukio’s meticulous personality is reflected upon his artworks. In his drawings, after drawing an outline of the major theme, he divides the background into numerous squares of several millimeter on each side and carefully and slowly colors each square, one after another. It also takes a long time to create his calligraphic pieces to draw newspapers printed in English or French, because he comprehends the shape of each alphabet character and draws one by one in overlaying multitude.

Observing how Yukio works on his artworks, it appears more appropriate to call it a daily routine than a creative activity.
