Waka Yoshida

Dinosaurs and dream-like landscapes: welcome to the world of artist Waka Yoshida.

If brightly-coloured, dinosaur-inspired surrealism is your thing, look no further than the work of Waka Yoshida, an artist living and working in the Ibaraki prefecture of Japan. Yoshida shows an interest in geology; her portfolio is full of dissected landscapes, miniature clay sculptures and moulded mountains. Yet the world Yoshida depicts is not one with which we are familiar. Her rainbow arrays of rocks are much more appealing than conventional geology, and the diplodocuses which roam these landscapes are certain to make her viewers look twice.
