Bunkado: Gifts and Music


Original painting from the internment camps by Tokio Ueyama

Tokio was an artist by trade. He could even claim to have a friendship with Diego Rivera, which shows that he had some influence in the artist community. He wanted to open a store where other artists like himself could gather to socialize and buy special materials not found anywhere else.

This was a painting of his, finished while still in the internment camps. You can see the barracks outside in the background as the woman in the foreground makes the best of her situation by knitting. There are several other paintings of Tokio’s hanging on the walls of Bunkado.
