The creator of ghouls and ghosts
Shodoshima’s art scene isn’t bound to that of the Art Trienalle though, dig a little deeper and you will find various artists and studios presenting an interesting array of work on the island. A good example of this is the Yokai Art Museum and it’s resident creator/director Cubei Yagyu.
Cubei Yagyu who was born and raised on Shodoshima has been fascinated with the supernatural from a young age, depicting the ghosts, goblins and fairies he believes exist on the island through paintings and illustrations. His work can be seen at the Yokai Art Museum, which is split across several locations, close to Tonosho Port.
