Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Katsumi Kimoto - Painter
Growing up on the Pacific west coast was the foundation of my lifelong appreciation for abstract beauty. I was raised in the coastal community of Ucluelet, BC, where I spent my days and many nights on the beach, surrounded by trees and in/on the water. I developed a great fascination with both the micro and macro views of the natural abstraction in my environment, whether it’s on rocks, in the forest or on the sea. Therefore, when I paint, I want to expose the natural abstraction of the paint mixing, and the beauty that lies within; the nature of paint.
Kimoto achieved his Bachelor of Fine Arts (w/Distinction) from Concordia University in Montreal, a Diploma in Visual Arts (w/Honours) from Kwanten College and a Senior Management Certificate in New Media Design from BCIT. Kimoto has worked professionally in art galleries for 20 years, as a Lead Sales Associate, Director and/or Curator, and most recently owned and operated the Kimoto Gallery in Vancouver, from 2013 – 2019.
