Biography from ArtSanDiego:

John Yato (1950-    )      

John Yato, watercolor painter, was born within sight of Mount Fuji, Japan, on May 13, 1950.  At the age of nine he moved to the United States with his family.

John worked as a designer and illustrator for sixteen years. Stylistically, he is a very versatile artist, perhaps best known for the realistic style of his California landmark paintings….usually done in watercolor.

 "I utilize a variety of styles to capture ever changing scenes of life" says Yato.  His subject matter is also varied, ranging from scenes of his home city (San Diego), to architecture, wildlife, landscapes, figures and seascapes.

On his travels to Japan, Hawaii, Europe and Mexico, he returns with many sketches, photographs and videotapes recording his observations.  His aim is to create works that will stand the test of time and raise watercolors to the status historically enjoyed by oil paintings.

John's works are included in the collections of: Gregory Peck, Betty White, Simon and Simon TV show, Major Dad TV show, President L. Johnson, Vice Admiral Robert K. Kihune, the Mayor of Yokohama, Japan, the Mayor of Mexico City, and TV host Pat Brown.  His works have also hung in many well known U.S. Navy ships; such as The Battleship USS Missouri, Carrier USS Constellation, Carrier USS Kitty Hawk, Carrier USS Independence, and many others.

John Yato has had many one man shows, taught watercolor painting, and has done numerous demonstrations throughout San Diego and Southern California.
