“Yurika Cherise Shikai is a Japanese-American illustrator and designer. She was born and raised in the culturally diverse East Los Angeles and draws from a variety of cultural influences within the city and through living and working abroad.
Sketching is a personal compulsion that allows her to gain a more intimate understanding of the world through mentally tracing and “feeling” shapes and forms. She finds a satisfaction in applying simple graphic HB pencil to paper, with a rough urgency to transpose the tracing activity of the mind, to the hand.”
