“This piece centres around Niseko and is fused with an yōkai art twist. It represents the playful nature of Japanese culture, beautiful landscapes and the never-ending search for snow.” “Yōkai, which translates to "bewitching apparition" or "mysterious phenomena," is an integral part of Japanese folklore and is often depicted in art, literature, and popular culture. These supernatural creatures, ranging from mischievous to downright scary, have been inspiring artists for centuries.” Mike Shankster From a lifetime of making Art, Mike’s skill set is broad as is his range of creative influences. His driving passion for creating stemmed from an early love of comic books and cartoons and later developed to the influences of action sports, urban and rural landscapes, people and wildlife, concrete and culture.
