California, based Hawaian artist Edwin Ushiro attended the Art Center College of Design and attained a BFA in Illustration. Since then, Ushiro has been working in the amazing world of entertainment as a Production Designer, Visual Consultant, Art Director, Storyboard Artist, and Concept Designer.
Ushiro’s childhood memories come to life in his paintings — haunting images of friends, family pets, and ghostly specters on the Hawaiian islands where he was born and raised. He captures the essence of Hawaii, youth, and nostalgia in a technique that’s uniquely his own.
