Chubei Yagyu

名称未設定 5.jpgI like to call myself a yōkai artist. Yōkai is a Japanese term for preternatural creatures used in Japanese folklore to explain strange, supernatural or unaccountable phenomena. They have been used as motifs for toys and pictures since the 1600s and are often found as characters in popular manga or anime. Originally, however, I think that yōkai were closely linked to the night and darkness.
In a world without electric light, Japanese people feared what lurked in the darkness, sensing things with potentially dangerous powers in the night or in strange occurrences. Just as they associated light with the divine and worshipped it, they were likewise awed by darkness and aware of invisible movement within it.
Yōkai have been depicted as enemies of light, bringers of harm or simply as pranksters. Personally, I wonder if they aren’t some kind of messenger.
They attract me and also shape and inspire my means of expression.
