Artist Profile: Noe Yamabe

Noe Yamabes soulful and dramatic illustrations are a direct result of his own experiences as a child at Gila River internment camp in Arizona, where his mother died at the age of 38. The images express the stark scenes of camp life and immortalize the names and desolate locations of the camps where guard towers, barbed-wire fences and black tar-paper barracks were familiar sights.

With simplicity and boldness, his designs evoke the deep emotional strength, soul and dignity of all Japanese Americans who were interned.
