About Taiyo Okamoto

Taiyo Okamoto grew up by the ocean in Karatsu, Japan, where he often spent his childhood days twilighting on the seawall; dreamily gazing at the vast sky, crashing waves, and flying fish. He has lived in New York City since 2002.​

Working across mediums, Taiyo creates chigiri-e inspired paper art from small works to large installations, paintings, photography, digital art and writings.


He appears in the film "HANAGATAMI" directed by legendary Japanese filmmaker Nobuhiko Obayashi.
