Yuko Yabuki. An artist, I paint and cook.

When I was a child I would draw anything that came to my mind whenever I could find any spare time.

“White Dragon”

What inspires you?

Something beautiful that we can not see with our eyes, but we know is there in our mind.

Dryness. Heat. Nature. Indigenous culture.

Where can we see you(r) work?


Mostly online (Facebook, Instagram)

{9}gallery. Ice House.

Some annual shows (Hell City Tattoo Convention in August, Chaos show in October).

My art studio.

What would you like to accomplish before you die?

Travel the world. I want my parents to be happy about what I do (art). I want to show them that what I do can make people happy, so they can die happy.

I want to publish my art book, and of course, I want to paint the masterpiece that I could feel I am ready to die.

“Destroy And Resurrect”

What is your mantra?

Don’t complain.

Beauty is not something only we can see or touch, it is something we feel with our heart.
