about
Iki Yasuo is an artist inspired by his surfing environment and the natural world around him.
Iki wouldn’t write down what he wants to tell you in a word, but instead he starts to draw a picture as his way of expression. He is inspired by earth’s nature and projects it all through his paintbrush.
Passionate about natures shapes and textures, his modern graffiti and detailed style reflects his deep creative connection to making art and the ocean world.
Iki takes a pen to any surface and has created works on cloth, wood, surfboards, and wetsuits.
Recently in Byron Bay as a guest artist for the Byron Bay Surf Festival, Iki fell in love with the shores and create an artworks inspired by Byron Bay.

 自身のサーフィンする環境や大自然の世界からインスパイアされた作品を作るアーティスト。
 自然の織り成す造形やテクスチャーにIkiは情熱を駆り立てられ、モダンなグラフィティと繊細なスタイルはアートの創作と海との深い関わりを映し出します。
どんな素材もキャンバスとなり、作品を描きあげます。それは布地や木片、サーフボード、ウェットスーツとルールはありません。
 近年、Byron Bay Surf Festivalにゲストアーティストとして訪れたこのビーチでIkiは自身のライフスタイルに必要なアイテム(surf, art, culture)が揃っている美しい町、Byron Bayにすっかり魅了されインスパイアされた物を創作しています。
