Yusuke Hanai - Illustrator and Fine Artist
Posted on 05 March 2019
Yusuke Hanai, born in Japan in 1978, is an illustrator and fine artist inspired by the vibrations and personalities found in America's counterculture movements. After discovering the legendary Grateful Dead album cover artist known as Rick Griffin, Yusuke took the leap to the United States in an effort to capture Rick Griffin's artistic spirit within his own works of art. Here, he studied illustration at the Academy of Art, San Francisco and discovered his love for illustrating people - particularly people being weird and unique in their own. Although Yusuke is currently living in Japan where he continues his artistic endeavors as an illustrator/fine artist, he continues to spread joy worldwide through his collaborations and exhibitions.
