Kentaro Yoshida in his art studio

Kentaro was born and raised in a rural fishing village in Toyama, Japan. At the age of 18, Kentaro moved to Australia in pursuit of the English language, sunny beaches, and a more balanced lifestyle. After a decade, he is now an illustrator and artist, currently based in the Northern Beaches of Sydney.  Kentaro is passionate about both traditional and digital mediums. His pastel toned artwork has bold line-work, quirky characters, and a beach-side sense of humour. He has worked with various international brands, as well as individuals for private commissions. Kentaro also specialises in hand-painting artwork from large-scale murals, to detailed painting on fragile watercolour paper.
