Yoshikazu Ebisu was born in 1947 in
After graduating from high school, Ebisu was exposed to the work of the world wide famous graphic designer Tadanori Yokoo and his dream of becoming an artist himself began. Though he had great dreams of being a graphic designer or a scenario writer of Nagisa Oshima’s Film, Ebisu felt he had little opportunities in his hometown and left for the greener pastures of
To say that people though Ebisu’s work was in bad taste is an understatement. Even other underground artists like Yoshiharu Tsuge thought that his views of the world surpassed the absurd. However, other major artists were intrigued by this raw and exaggerated style, and even the primogenitor of the alternative comic world in
The public may not have embraced Ebisu’s art whole heatedly, but they most certainly fell in love with him as a character. Often featured on talk shows and news shows in
Ebisu was never very interested in how people viewed him. He was never concerned with being popular or being a celebrity. The only thing that interested him in the middle of all of this publicity and television stardom was the money that he was receiving. Ebisu spent his days smiling on television, but in the back of his head, a dull anger and rage grew. His thoughts turned very violent as he continued this charade for the public eye, and he used his art, like Sagawa, to help channel and calm this inner rage. He used his art to express his desire to massacre the people around him, and through this medium was able to stay calm.
Recently, Ebisu has been working as a writer of essay about his 62 years of experience in life, and also working as a movie critic. His works as a writer are of unbelievable quality and passion, and worth reading for even those who are not currently a fan of Ebisu. His passion for writing comes not from reading as he does not read and says that he has never read a single book. Instead, his passion comes from the many movies that he has watched and loves, and the things that he has seen in life.
At first glance, Ebisu looks like nothing more than a simple man, but in truth he is an idiot savant. Ebisu’s artwork has drawn favorable comparisons to American artists like Raymond Pettibone and Daniel Johnston, and it has been said that their appearance and demeanor are similar as well. In truth, the only way to understand Ebisu and his work is to see them for yourself. There are many words that come close to describing him, but there is no perfect fit.
Ebisu loves to gamble, so keep your eyes open for him at casinos around the world.
