Ikegami Yoriyuki

Explore a colourful world full of surprises.

Baths brimming with flowers, giant, sobbing schoolgirls, grand pianos floating in the sky, a selfie-taking samurai: nothing is too weird for illustrator Ikegami Yoriyuki, whose colourful world is full of surprises. Yoriyuki, who has won multiple prizes for her work, lives in Kyoto. With a recent solo exhibition coming up in Yokohama at Switch Box あけ/たて Gallery, we're looking forward to seeing what’s next for this wonderfully whimsical illustrator.
