Artist Yosuke Yamamoto
Wields his carving chisel as though it were an extension of his own arm. From an early age, Yamamoto was awakened to the art of wood carving, watching the thrilling danjiri parade from the sidelines in his hometown of Osaka, Japan. Inspired by the elaborate hand-carved wooden floats in these parades, Yamamoto was consumed with a passion for wood crafting. “I was holding a chisel by the time I was in middle school,” he told Instagram Blog. It was not too long after, upon graduating from high school, that he obtained an apprenticeship with a master. A determination to pursue the ancient craft was stirred in Yamamoto and he has yet to look back.
