Today's Spotlight is with Yoskay Yamamoto, who recently had a couple of his design items featured in The London Evening Standard and Living Etc magazine. Here Yoskay talks abit about how flowers inspire and influence his work.
"I have been using flowers in my work for a of couple years. Last year I did a series of portraits called 'four season';"
"To me flowers carry the essence of growth, but also have such a fragile state. The cycle of growth, blossom, and decay echo the circular nature of life that I'm fascinated about"
My Cup of Tea
"My pillow is produced by the company, this is limited edition. They originally approached me to design a Tea Cup and Saucer set and they were really happy with the design so they requested me to design a pillow case"
Colher — Portuguese Illustration
Portuguese Illustration is the first publication of Colher which aims to boost portuguese illustration by showcasing the work of the most talented Portuguese illustrators and also non-portuguese who have had an academic or professional experience in Portugal.
Confined to a special edition of 200 copies, this project stands out for its innovative printing technique, risography held by London’s oldest printing company specialised in this type of printing - Ditto Press. Apart from a texture of its own, risography also allows the use of special colours, and Colher chose a garish and captivating fluorescent orange that gives other brilliance to the illustrations.
Curated by Eurico Sá Fernandes and co-supported by Coworking Lisboa and Colher.
