Born in Kagoshima, Japan, Kris Goto is an illustrator. After spending her school years in Hong Kong and New Zealand, the artist moved to Hawaii in 2006. If she was originally mostly fascinated by Manga, she then discovered a world outside of it, and more particularly the art of Maori tattoos. In 2009, Kris caught her first wave, a moment that visibly still inspires her in many of her pieces. In “The Bliss series”, which was exhibited at Greenroom Hawaii Gallery, she delved deep into one’s tropical bliss and adventure experienced In Hawaii.
