He’s designing for Apparel brands, Record Store, and Skateboard companies as well.
In 2009, VANS (USA) expressed his style of the artwork as “POP-GORE” at interview.
His friend, Santos says:
“What can I say About Yuzuru? His detail work and electric colors draw you into his world, immediately. Plus, the man has a special place in his art for skulls and the macabre. Not to be pigeon-holed, he can think outside of the box and show you a side of him that includes cubed landscapes, colorful storyboards, and a touch of his native Japan. I’m glad that Yuzuru is someone that I can call a friend. I haven’t met him, yet I still trust him more that I people that I have known for years.”
- Thanks, Santos.
