Bruce Yonemoto

Bruce Yonemoto (b. 1949) has explored the relationship between mass media and the politics of identity in his work for many years. In his first classes in Ethnic Studies as a student at University of California, Berkeley, Yonemoto discovered an interest in his Japanese heritage. Following graduation, he spent three years studying in Japan and became a fan of manga (Japanese comics).

The series of prints on display in the exhibition were created after his return to Los Angeles and employs altered manga and American comic books. With a wry sense of humor, Yonemoto replaces the original texts, harnessing the sensibility and attitude of the cartoon images to explore conflicts between identity and creativity and his position in the world as an artist.
