Kris Goto Art

      Hawaii artist Kris Goto’s early fascination was with manga, especially the works of artists Hayao MiyazakiYuu Watase, Ai Yazawa and Osamu Tezuka.  She never doubted that she would be a manga artist after she graduated high school.  Pen on paper is her preferred medium as it allows her to express herself and see what her brain sees.  What she’s done, seen and felt is a huge factor when it comes to art inspiration.
      Born and raised in the countryside of Japan (woo hoo rice fields!!), Kris moved to Hong Kong at a young age. She moved to Hawaii in 2006 and has found great commercial success in Hawaii galleries and with collectors around the world.
