Born in Aichi prefecture in 1974. While his academic studies were primarily focused on pedagogy, his artwork traverses a broad range of subject matter and explores many aspects of society and human nature. Yamamoto’s approach to artistic creation is simultaneously critical and humorous. His work has been presented in many major international exhibitions worldwide. He is currently investigating various approaches to education in order to deepen and broaden his idea of creation based on his concept of “moments of facing the unknown.” Major works: “Go-Betweens: The World Seen through Children” (Mori Art Museum 2014-2015), “Kochi-Muziris Biennale (2016)”, Asian Art Award 2017 (TERRADA ART COMPLEX 4F 2017).
