About Taka Miyagi
Taka Miyagi (高宮城), is an Okinawan-American painter best known for her eclectic style and calligraphic lines. Her childhood began on the island 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-Japanese-American relationship through her work.
My work is an amalgamation of my culture, abstract expressionism, and the natural beauty that surrounds me. Each painting reflects my unique perspective and understanding of the world. I invite you to explore my portfolio and discover the beauty and passion that I have poured into my art.
