On a winter afternoon, driving on the I-210, the nature of the existence was revealed to me.
I saw myself as a brief spark in an infinite universe. My being, I felt, was as close to being “nothing” as it was to being “something.” As I sat there in my car, perched on the edge of existence, one thing became clear to me: I would create art.
Born in Fukushima, Japan, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Miki Yokoyama is an autodidact working across multiple mediums including canvas, objet d'art, murals, and live performance. As she explores themes of life, death, and transformation, she shares her vision of the universe as a transient, interconnected experience ripe with the potential for beauty, discovery, and rebirth.
Miki is a member of the Los Angeles Art Association, and her work and collaborations with fellow artists have been exhibited at locations including the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, the San Diego Art Institute, the World Art Day Gala, and the Italian Consulate General’s residence in Osaka, Japan. She is also part of the BOTART International Collection and has created murals that can be seen at locations across Los Angeles as well as in Japan.
