Honolulu-based artist Kris Goto works mainly with pens in paper, but she’s also a muralist.
Kris Goto was born in Kagoshima, Japan and spent her upbringing in Hong Kong and New Zealand before moving to Hawaii in 2006. She was once aspired to become a manga artist, inspired by the works of Yuu Watase and Tezuka Osamu. This period became the foundation of her detailed and meticulous penmanship. She is currently inspired by the day to day life of the local island living in Hawaii where she applies her imagination, humor, cynicism and whimsicality into her body of work.
