Allison T. Yano (b. 1991) is a concept artist
with a background in fine arts and writing.
Her on-going fine arts practice investigates themes of hybridity, empathy, and futurism while drawing upon global history and trends in our contemporary society.
Yano was raised in rural Ontario, Oregon where her exposure to Cartoon Network’s Toonami and Adult Swim programming became her first creative influences. This mix of pop culture and Yano’s multicultural background fuels her vision
as a storyteller.
She received her B.F.A. in Applied Visual Arts with a Minor in Writing from Oregon State University in 2014,
& her M.F.A. in Painting & Drawing from
Pratt Institute in 2016. Yano has exhibited in both Oregon and New York City.
Yano currently studies at Brainstorm
& lives in Burbank, CA.
