Eishin Yoza


Eishin Yoza was born 1951 on Ishigaki Island in Okinawa, Japan. He left Okinawa at 18 to study painting at Shinjuku Art School in Tokyo, and subsequently studied traditional kimono design (Sumi-e) in Kyoto. At age 26, he sailed from Yokohama on a 40-ft sailboat for 43 days through the Bering Sea to Alaska. After three years of work and adventure in the U.S., his wanderlust carried him to Europe in 1981. Like thousands of artists before him, Yoza was immediately drawn to Paris, where he trained at Atelier St. Isaure. He fell in love with French artist Caroline Cerda, and they married in 1982.

In Paris, Yoza received acclaim for his sensual paintings of beautiful women, inspired by the goddesses of classical mythology. Yoza won 1st prize at the International Art Show of Montmartre, and 2nd prize at the Salon des Artistes of the 15th arrondissement (the largest) in Paris, and the Concourse of International Art in Belgium. He has participated in the Salon National des Beaux-Arts, Salon de les Artistes Francais, and Salon d'Automne in Paris. His paintings have been exhibited internationally in Europe and Japan.
