Self-taught artists Yusk Imai, started his impressive career as an artists experimenting techniques using different types of paint on wood in combination with painting in the streets of São Paulo. Strongly influenced by the French artist Eroné, Yusk was always experimenting with calligraphic and Japanese symbols, texsts and figures, which shows how much of a diverse amount of styles he controls, both in and outdoors. The world created by the artist shows influences from mangas, comics, Dali, Ernst and Miró. Yusk fills spaces with different styles of texture, slightly deformed human figures, and overlays of decorative friezes. His work was many times compared to the Austrian art nouveau artist, Gustav Klimt. In a later stadium mystic circles reproduced in installations and canvasses show a seeming search for the inner pools of darkness as a reflection of the divine. Through his desire to balance on the edges of human nature, Yusk is always exploring his own capacities, resulting in extraordinary combinations of abstract and organic elements.
