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).
SAN MURATA would like to give a special thank you to all the musicians who have played with him over the years and taught him about jazz. Eimei Yoshikawa, Norman Amadio, Jim McBirnie, Bob George, Jake Langley, Ken G, Danny McErlain, Gary Benson, Tony Quarrington, Beverly Taft, Jack Zorawski, Reg Schwager, Koji Hori, and especially Mark Kieswetter. Thanks to the generosity of these wonderful players. San has been able to enjoy making music in Toronto for nearly twenty years.
