Brazilian artist of Japanese-American descent. His works are exquisitely stylized figures inspired by his imagination and mythology. The atmosphere is dark and ambiguous. Imai Yusk often portrays animals with human forms and vice versa. It is impossible to say at once what his work means: when looking, the original image is lost, and a completely different understanding of the work arises. His works, due to their symbolism, are compared to those of Gustav Klimt. There are parallels with the surrealism of Max Ernst and Joan Miró. The Japanese trait is evident in his work: inspired by traditional sources and manga. At Vulica 2016, he created the mural "Improvisation on the wall", about the wish for freedom.
