Illustrated Interview: Kentaro Yoshida
Kick back with one of Sydney's best
Mad Love 3m

Skeletal Bad Boys riding waves, beer swigging, and getting into punch ups make up the world of artist Kentaro Yoshida.

Born and raised in Japan, Kentaro moved to Sydney when he was 18 years old. Attracted to the soft sand and head-high waves of the Northern Beaches, Kentaro set up shop in Sydney’s Northern Coastal Capital, Manly. Fast forward a decade and he is one of the most exciting illustrators/artists currently coming out of this city.

Bold line work rendered with cool pastel colours characterize Kentaro’s playful yet subtly melancholic depiction of beach and boozy lifestyles. To that effect, Kentaro has carved out an interesting niche for himself in an artistic landscape that might share the same motifs, but rarely pulls it off with the flair and originality that he manages to execute.

We asked the man himself about his inspirations, work and balancing life between the froth of waves and ice cold beers.
