The psychedelic paintings of Yu Maeda blend creatures, shifting perspectives, and touches of the artist’s experience in graphic design. Born in Kumamoto, Japan, and currently based in Southern California, the artist combines influences from all of the fields he’s touched, including animation. Some of his more symmetrical works resemble Tibetan Buddhist mandalas, while others take on a more portrait-style look at his monsters.
