De­signer Kota Ya­maji’s 3D pop art il­lus­tra­tions

Since grad­u­at­ing from Tokyo's Tama Art Univer­sity in 2015, dig­i­tal artist Kota Ya­maji has been hard at work putting his CG skills to good use as a free­lancer. Bold colours and Ja­panese pop cul­ture are two el­e­ments that con­tinue to in­spire his projects, whether that's a mu­sic video, 3D il­lus­tra­tion or some­thing else en­tirely. “I stud­ied graphic de­sign, an­i­ma­tion and so on at univer­sity, but I stud­ied com­puter graph­ics in my own time,” says Ya­maji. “I then com­bined this with the sense of colour I cul­ti­vated dur­ing my de­gree. It al­ways helps my job.” Ya­maji's sur­real, eye-catch­ing 3D im­agery is per­haps best seen in his 2017 col­lec­tion sim­ply ti­tled Graphic Works [pic­tured right]. “I found my unique colour style while work­ing on this project,” he re­veals. “It was even fea­tured in the top gallery on Be­hance, open­ing up many op­por­tu­ni­ties for me.” http://ko­taya­maji.com
