TOMO MORI was born in the countryside of Osaka, Japan. She studied fundamental drawing and painting intensively at Tokyo Metropolitan High School for Music and Fine Arts. In 1991, she entered the Atlanta College of Art to pursue studying contemporary art in the U.S. Since 2010, she has been working almost exclusively in a meticulous, hands-on-process of canvas-on-canvas collage. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Atlanta and Tokyo, including Rogue Space Chelsea, Chashama, Dwyer Center, Canvas Paper Stone Gallery, Renaissance Fine Art, Knox Gallery, Bill Lowe Gallery and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum. Tomo currently lives in West Harlem, as her creative base, and continues to explore the world from Bamako to Hanoi. She believes experiencing new culture adds more colors to her palette and her life.
Her Solar Fountain for the West Harlem Art Fund is located in the Family Garden sponsored by Tiffany on 114th Street between 1st and Pleasant Avenue.
