ABOUT TAKA

IMG_1030.JPG

Takamiyagi (高宮城), born in California in the 90's is an Okinawan-American painter best known for her eclectic style. Her early childhood began on the islands of Okinawa where she was shaped by the post-war strain between the Okinawan locals, American military, and the Japanese government.

 

 As High School approached in 2008, her family sought unexpected refuge and relocated to the United States where familiar racial tensions drove her to seek solace in painting.  Upon graduation, she joined the Air Force and spent 6 years in Tampa. Now, she calls Atlanta home and aspires to bridge the confusing Okinawan-American relationship through her work.
