Jave Yoshimoto creates work that focuses on natural, man-made, or imaginary disasters and, in doing so, brings to light a “social amnesia” found in contemporary culture. Yoshimoto, born in Japan to Chinese parents, migrated to California at an early age. This cross-cultural background fundamentally informs his work and provides a broad world-view for him to draw upon. Yoshimoto is an Assistant Professor of Art in the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
