Yuni Yoshida is a 34-year old graphic designer and art director. She has created a surrealist food series in which food appears to have been manually pixelated.
This division into pixels is not to disguise the identity of the pineapple, nor is it to split the image of the burger into colored particles for correct display or storage in digital format. Instead, Yoshida’s rendering of fruit, vegetable, and burger takes their organic forms and re-configures their colors in cubes, perfect in their repetition and size.
Yoshida has developed quite a name for her surrealist work which frequently employs commonplace items or scenarios in subversive situations.
She studied at Joshibi University of Art and Design before making her way through several ad agencies including working under Takuya Onuki where, it can be argued, she developed her unique perspective. In 2007 she went solo, making a name for herself by art directing various campaigns for department stores like La Foret Harajuku and Parco, as well as various CD jackets. Her work often features female models in surreal, dreamlike settings that make you look, and then look a little closer.
