Mitsuyo Okada is a Japanese painter based in Brooklyn. Her work explores fragments of memory that associate with nature, often that of her hometown, which is surrounded by peaceful ocean and mountains. Okada recently exhibited at Space 776 and the gallery space at Pfizer Building in Brooklyn. She is expected to graduate with her MFA in Painting and Drawing from Pratt Institute this year. Her zine “Summer Jam 2018” compiles soft, textured drawings of summer in NYC that evoke Okada’s childhood: the beach where they played til it got dark, her silly white cat Haku, a DJ at a funk soul party.
