Yoshida painted a series of works that featured cars in the mid-90s. In this undated drawing, the cars, with their seemingly hairy and rugged exteriors appear to vibrate, shudder, and lurch over rocky terrain and through a maze of doughy shapes. Perhaps these hairy-looking cars are a play on words (which the artist was fond of) and allude to a hairy, potentially dangerous situation. After all, according to Yoshida, the reason for his car series was as follows: "I drive a lot and am very aggressive and impatient."
