A modernist painter, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, known as “Yas”, combined in his figures, animals and still life elements of 19th-century folk art, Japanese motif, and modernist European and American art with a whimsical approach of his own.  His work had precise draftsmanship, symbolism, decorative imagery, and he took real-world themes and injected them with fantasy and a tone of moodiness.  Some of his work was decorative such as the Art-Deco motif wall paintings he did for the women's (showing 500 of 8197 characters).
