He also showed work in the B.C. Artists annual exhibitions in 1937, 1940, and 1941.
It is possible that Yamada was later interned with the B.C. Japanese population after Japan entered World War II. The few Japanese artists exhibiting in Vancouver prior to that time soon disappeared from the exhibition catalogues. It is perhaps ironic that one of his paintings in the Atelier Sketch Club exhibition was a portrait of a member of another persecuted minority in British Columbia, the East Indians.
BC Vital Statistics on-line did not provide any information on the artist as of July 2021.
