Japanese Vaporwave Illustrations of 80’s Americana

Step into Yoko Honda’s world of palm trees, swimming pools and neon squiggles.

While it might seem like everyone is trending 90’s, illustrator Yoko Honda goes a decade further for her geometric prints and patterns. The addictive dreamscapes channel consumer culture and new-age with a strong dose of Vaporwave.

A self-taught artist based in Japan, Honda started her digital paintings in 2013 and quickly attracted attention through her ultra-bright Instagram account. Recent collaborations include a flamingo deck chair for Culture Label, Akade Wear’s summer collection and a coloring book called Wish You Were Here by Sugoi Books.
