Qris Yamashita

Qris Yamashita (b.1951) is a graphic designer and artist whose work has formed a visual identity for the Japanese American and Asian Pacific American community. Her posters, books, flyers, and T-shirts have been crucial in promoting a sense of community and solidarity. She successfully synthesizes traditional Japanese and contemporary Western images in her work, consciously developing a uniquely Japanese American sensibility and perspective. A lifelong Angeleno, Yamashita has been an active member of the Kinnara Taiko and Senshin Buddhist Temple, supporting the development of a Japanese American Buddhist culture.
