Born in Los Angeles, CA. Erin Yoshi's artwork goes beyond the easel. Her artwork is a reflection of her journey through the contradictions of life amplifying the beautiful, the raw, and the downright ugly. The work is rooted in her historic cultural memories and informed by current global conditions. She uses her creative practice to inspire, engage and transform space. Yoshi's work encompasses abstract color vibrations with figurative storytelling. Through her practice, she strives to create hope and lines of camaraderie.
