• SATO

    A Visual Artist.

  • Profile

    Sato Yamamoto is a Japanese artist inspired by culture and diversity. Her unique style includes advanced printmaking and paper-making skills, that she perfected during her time in New York. Growing up in Japan, Sato used watercolors and acrylics to create brush drawing for the scenic own world. Upon moving to The United States, she noticed the vast diversity and fell in love with the multicultural tones of the city. New York changed her perspective of artistry; she attended the School of Visual Arts and began learning abstract printmaking techniques. Later, she was enrolled in Dieu Donné papermill at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and, as an admin intern, she learned handmade paper-making techniques. Her skills gained notice and in 2018, Sato was honored with an invitation to the Awagami Paper Factory in Tokushima, Japan to learn the art of traditional Japanese Washi paper-making.

    Throughout her travels, Sato has grown tremendously, further developing her craft with the heart of her artwork based on diversity. She moved to New York with hopes of being a pioneer in her craft and returned to Japan as a respected and appreciated artist. Her artwork rises above the boundaries of discrimination to connect viewers from all backgrounds and she hopes to inspire them to embrace uniqueness and multi-cultural experiences.
