With the increase of ever evolving technologies, so too is an increase in various forms of deception. Perpetrators are there to trick artists and art buyers alike.
Yukio Kevin Iraha now inscribed a special mark/symbol in the back of each piece of artworks. Along with the mark/symbol, an official certificate of authenticity will accompany each piece of artworks to indicate its legitimacy. However this excludes any digital media: digital photos/art due to its reproduction capabilities and also difficult to monitor users' actions and intent. While artist do not disprove reproductions or digital forms of art, anyone to falsify, misrepresent, or to abuse one's work/reputations is not permissible by any means. Please be very careful of counterfeits especially whenever monetary transactions are required.

WORD OF CAUTION

Our ever increasing dependence on online world means that we have all come across absolutely irrelevant search results, from who knows where. Unfortunately these less than flattering results appear when others search for us without our knowledge. Regardless of whether they are intentionally trying to harm one’s reputation or not, the fact remains that they appear whether you like it or not. There are many irrelevant spam sites scraped content from legitimate sites perpetrating as valid when in fact they are not. Some sites may contain malware or virus when you click them. Thus we ask consumers to be cautious and vigilant, to practice discernment about what is relevant and what’s not especially with regards to purchases of any items online.
We have listed the most current sites the artist has had linked to. Bear in mind, discontinuing link accounts may or may not have been artist's choice but could have been sites' decision as well. They change over a time, please refer to this list and ignore other sites and links which have nothing to do with the artist.
