The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
Yuki Maruyama is a Japanese-American artist who grew up in constant flux between multiple countries and languages. Her drawings are strongly influenced by the Japanese Manga (comics) she avidly read during her childhood in the US and through her adolescence in Japan. The genre is intimately connected to her dual cultural heritage; Manga and related forms of visual culture have played a significant role in the complex cultural cross-pollination between the US and Japan, beginning as early as Post-War Japan and especially in the last three decades. Yuki holds an MFA in Drawing and Painting from California College of the Arts. She is the recipient of a 2015 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and a 2016 Vermont Studio Center Fellowship.
