Yukio Kevin Iraha has a degree in Fine Art and has exhibited paintings through out United States and Japan. He has also worked in the commercial art field as well. He has contributed art to some publications and has done commission works.

His art is eclectic and ethereal but his integrity never fails in both the creating and outcome of the pieces. He clearly believes there is a line between fraud and true art form. He says,"I try to express true self. I don't make art to please people, but at the same time I won't create or show art that's contrary and intentionally distasteful."
