Artist/Illustrator

NAO YOSHIHARA

He has been creating works based on the concept of "Ukiyo-e and contemporary culture. He started his art style when he came up with an interesting combination of French bread and Ukiyoe to draw delicious French bread at the bakery where he worked at the time. As he drew pictures based on Ukiyoe, he learned more about the history and historical background of Ukiyoe, and felt that it was a valuable part of Japanese culture. What was then a familiar work of art that could be displayed in a room or pasted on a fan, has over time become a world-class work of art of the highest caliber. While retaining the composition and the idea of satire, he incorporates the contemporary culture he has been exposed to, and creates works that convey the "now" to future generations.

Daikanyama Gallery × NFT

​"Ukiyo Street" is a collection of works created by Nao Yoshihara. Ukiyo-e is a painting style that was popular among the ordinary people in Japan during the Edo period. NFTs are also open to anyone who wants to go. Since Nao is a renegade, she mixed Ukiyo-e, street culture, and NFT to further sublimate it into "Ukiyo Street".
