Born and raised in Toba, Japan, Yoskay Yamamoto moved to the United States at the age of 15. As a self-trained illustrator, Yamamoto's artistic tastes expanded as he fell in love with the urban culture of the West coast. Yamamoto's affection and
love for the West coast lifestyle are well reflected in his artwork, from his use of a sunset color palette to references of Americana culture and its history.

Yamamoto's sensibility allows him to capture simple, subtle joys of everyday life and highlight them through paintings, sculp-tures, murals, and installations.

Yamamoto has showcased his work in galleries and museums both domestically and internationally, including Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Manila, and Paris. After spending over 20 years in California, he has temporarily relocated to Phoenix, Az, where he is discovering the new joy in the surrounding nature. One of the artist's work is held in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art collections. He was recently chosen as the official artist for Los Angeles Film Festival 2017, and in
2018 he completed a site-specific installation at Facebook Headquarters.
