“Secluded Microcosm”

Jave Gakumei Yoshimoto

Jave Yoshimoto is an artist and educator of multi-cultural background. He was born in Japan to Chinese parents and immigrated to United States at a young age. He has since traveled and lived in various parts of the country which influenced his artistic practice. He believes in creating art works that are socially conscious and true to his authentic self.

Similarly in his teaching philosophy, he encourages his students to explore their personal identity and experiences to put into their creative compositions while developing their technical skills.

Yoshimoto received his bachelor’s from the University of California Santa Barbara in studio art, his Post-baccalaureate Certificate in painting and drawing and Master of Arts in art therapy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and his Master of Fine Arts in painting at Syracuse University.

He has experience working as an art therapist/mental health professional in Chicago, Illinois, as well as being a painting instructor at Syracuse University and a teaching artist in Seattle, Washington. He has worked with various age groups and diverse ethnic populations in both rural and urban settings and has served as an artist-in-residence at various artist colonies across the United States.
