Born and educated in Kanazawa, Tokyo-based artist Kenichi Yokono makes traditional woodblocks, but rather than treating them as a means for printing, he displays the carved blocks themselves. Manga, anime, and horror movie tropes populate his works, which are almost exclusively red and white, and always intricately detailed and precisely patterned.
