Harumo Sato is a California based Japanese visual artist who graduated from University at Buffalo in 2015.

In questioning our busy and highly industrialized daily lives, she translates old mythological analogy and allegory imagery into the modern, colorful, and unique visual images. She has a strong interest in pattern design which has traveled through many cultures and contexts over the centuries. With the various colorful materials like screen prints, Japanese watercolor, sumi ink, and acrylic she seeks visual pleasure and vivacious energy to open the viewer's mind.

Sato has exhibited her work in two recent solo shows. Mogu Mogu Munch Munch (Western New York Book Art Center, 2016) and Inner Peace and Outer Peace (Burlingame Public Library, 2017).
