Yuichi Yokoyama’s work is called “neo-manga” for his unique line drawings and funny conversations with his unique characters. This time, his new works appear on signboards and temporal fences built for the museum’s renovation work in the Hijiyama-koen park. The pieces were inspired by Hiroshima, the museum, and the history of Hijiyama, such as the story of the crane and shell mound. Please enjoy impact-full characters and their conversations that do not make any sense.
