    Akira Yamaguchi "THE BIG PICTURE"

    Akira Yamaguchi (born 1969 in Tokyo, Japan) is a Japanese artist. He lives and works in Tokyo, though his artwork has been exhibited worldwide. Yamaguchi's painting style combines contemporary oil painting techniques with the traditional Japanese composition style known as Yamato-e. He received his B.A. in oil painting (1994) and M.A. in oil painting (1996) from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. Yamaguchi designed the cover art for the album V by the nu-jazz music duo United Future Organization and illustrated the book Chronicles of My Life: An American in the Heart of Japan by Donald Keene.  A friend of Sofia Coppola, he played the bellboy in Lost in Translation(1999).
