Koji Yamamura is considered one of the greatest independent Japanese animators of this generation. Born in Japan in 1964, he has been crafting animation since age twelve by combining traditional drawings with mixed media such as modeling clay, still photography and painting. KimStim is proud to present a collection of Yamaura’s most remarkable works for the first time in the U.S., featuring his 2003 Oscar® Nominee (for Best Animated Short) Mt. Head; and his latest masterpiece, Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor—a nightmarish, virtuoso drawing-on-paper rendering of the famed short story.
