“yueru” is an artist duo formed by yutaokuda and Kaeru Tsukino.
Yutaokuda creates the original drawing with delicate lines and blurred colors, mainly featuring flowers and living creatures.
The drawing is then stratified into layers by Tsukino, who expresses a colorful world by using transparent resin.
“yueru” fuses the two artists who exist on opposite ends to create a world that can never be made possible without the other.
