Colorful creatures by d’Holbachie-Yoko
d’Holbachie-Yoko is a mysterious girl. When I first met her, she looked like an ordinary girl of small stature. Her works, however, are not only powerful, but also have a magic charm that wins viewer’s hearts. Despite their grotesqueness, her fanciful works reflect the mysterious, gentle gaze of a female artist. I often draw strange creatures. Some people may think they are grotesque and scary, but I do not intend to draw something grotesque. I feel they have been living in me for a long time, rather than I created them. And, they came out of me, using my paintings. So, it is difficult to answer when people ask, “What are they? What are they supposed to mean?” I wish someone would explain it for me.
