Born in Chiba, Japan. Resides in Tokyo.
Manabu Yamaguchi began creating illustrations around 2005. In 2007 he attended classes at Illustration Aoyamajuku, where he learned the fundamentals of illustration from Hiroyuki Izutsu and Etsuko Sakuta for three years.

Strongly inspired by 90s hip hop and street culture, his work evokes feelings of both disenchantment and loneliness.
