Being born and raised in the countryside of Japan, Hawaii-based artist Kris Goto developed an early fascination with the Japanese art form manga, especially the works of artists Hayao Miyazaki, Yuu Watase, Ai Yazawa and Osamu Tezuka. Moving to Hong Kong at the age of nine then spending two years of high school in New Zealand, Kris discovered worlds outside of manga, particularly inspired by the imaginative and intricate art of Maori tattoos which shines through in her detailed monochromatic penwork.
Kris moved to Hawaii in 2006, caught her first wave on a surfboard in 2009 and has been making marks in the surf art world ever since. Find her work displayed at multiple hotels in Waikiki and Chinatown.
