Yuta Onoda is an amazing illustrator with style that reflect the artistry of Japanese paintings as you could recognize some references of cultural motifs. In my opinion, these paintings reminds me of the famous animation director, Hayao Miyazaki. What I find interesting about Yuta's illustration is the visual narrative in each piece, as part of a storyboard or pages from a book supported with dramatic story.
Yuta Onoda is a recent graduate of Sheridan College in Canada. At the time of this posting, today is the last day for Yuta's exhibit at London Miles Gallery. Check his website for up-coming exhibits, as well as his blog which offers some information about his concept for each piece.
