Tamayo Muto is an emerging artist from Japan. She does painting, drawing, and photography. Although she just started creating artwork very recently, she has been working everyday and making new works. Her painting style is characterized by its unique bright color, called “happy color”. Most of her works speak for feelings of young women and ethnic minorities, as she herself is living as such entities in the US. She is very interested in Mexican culture, especially its vibrant colorful art works and festivals, and that might effect her style of art. She is showing works in many art events in San Diego.
