MAYUMI’s Artist Statement:
“I was born and raised in Tokyo Japan, graduated from Art College in 2004.With a new drive to create, I traded my Tokyo city for that of New York then once more to Los Angeles where I now reside. I paint, sew, and make arts and crafts accessories. I also perform with my dancing group “Spobra” founded in 2002”.

Mayumi Tanaka’s autobiograhical work is a snapshot of her life within and without her soul existence. That may sound philosophically high brow but her way of tuning into reality sets off the undulating bizarreness of the human condition (hers) relating to others and having fun with it. The abundance of color drawn into these creatures makes the darkness and ennui, fashionable.

Mayumi’s daily activities range from serving as a french maid at a high concept art gallery cafe space in Culver CIty to bizarre synch dancing in a dead pan Japanese girl trio group, named “Spobra” (athletic sport bra). Her partially auto biographical art need not much explanation as life speaks for itself. >:)

MISATO’s Artist Statement:
Japanese artist residing in LA. Draws and paints women, sometimes cats, and other things. Misato paints fleeting moments of beautiful women who materialize from her mind’s eye. Their effortless existence glow in the ambiguous afternoon light of fashion, sexuality and decorative aura.
