  • About

    Yue was born in Fukuoka Prefecture and lives there now. He depicts the modern city environment, presented in the long narrow format of a train window, the view most familiar to urban commuters. For Yue, people are as restricted and confined in cities as trees are when they are forced to grow like bonsai.
