From the works of artist Yamamoto Takato, we can observe how he inherited the past and opened up the possibility of animation art. At the end of the nineteenth century, there was a wave of "Art Nouveau" in the West. Among them, artists such as Alfons Maria Mucha (1860-1939) and Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) were the most famous. Influenced by printmaking, they liked to depict symbolic natural elements. In particular, Mucha is good at constructing pictures with lines, trying to reproduce Western Ukiyo-e.
Yamamoto Takato (1960-) was deeply influenced telemarketing list by Western Art Nouveau. At the same time, he also drew close to the traditional Ukiyo-e techniques. In such a state of overlapping each other, Yamamoto Takato combined animation elements such as danmei, lily, beautiful boy, and beautiful girl to create, which seems to be responding to the influence of Art Nouveau painters by Japanese prints at the end of the 19th century, and then opened the so-called "Heisei tanmei" Doctrine".
His recent works tend to have a grotesque and curious visual style. In fact, after looking at these contemporary artists and their works, we can think that life experience has become one of the indispensable nutrients for contemporary artists. When these animation elements greatly affect life experience, it is possible for artists who reflect on life Make it a part of creation, try to make these relatively popular and popular features, integrate art historical traditions and personal interpretations, and create new possibilities.
