Toko Shinoda is one of the world’s oldest practicing artists as well as one of its most accomplished. Having begun her study of calligraphy at the age of six, Shinoda’s work blends traditional Sumi ink painting with modern abstraction which she was exposed to while living in New York City in the 1950s. Her paintings and lithographs are held in numerous esteemed public collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of Art in Tokyo, the British Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
