ABOUT SAN MURATA San Murata lives in an historic small town east of Toronto. In his studio he paints scenes from everyday life, depicted in a folk art style “with a twist”. San’s inimitable colour sense and style convey a truly magical spirit of place. His gouache paintings are lively, colourful, and whimsical yet display a mastery of what can be a very challenging medium.

San works from rough sketches and frequently paints from memory focusing on the mood or feeling of each scene.

As an Art Director and Designer for local and network television, his work became iconic for their brands. At the same time he created numerous illustrations for books, magazines and newspapers.

His first exhibition was at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo followed by the Zenniku Gallery in Hiroshima, Japan. Since then San has had exhibitions at the Japan Foundation in Toronto, Hannabi Gallery (Tokyo), Yamagataya Gallery (Kagoshima), Gunjo Gallery (Kurume), and Spazio Gallery (Toronto).
