Edwin Kinji Ushiro ( 1977) illustrator and fine artist.
Beginning his journey as a native from the island of Maui, Edwin Ushiro traveled to California where he attended the Art Center College of Design and graduated with a BFA in Illustration with honors. From there he ventured onto a film career as an Art Director, Visual Effects Consultant, Storyboard Artist & Concept Designer on projects such as: CSI Miami, Battlestar Galactica: Caprica, and Angel. Continuing an urge to explore of his own projects, Edwin has recently expanded onto the gallery scene. His clients include: Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios, Sony Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, NBC, ABC, CBS, Disney, and the Jim Henson Company.

 Ushiro utilizes some truly unique artistic techniques, a fusion of traditional and digital. Ushiro incorporates paint, ink, iron transfers, fabric and other materials into his work in order to achieve the desired moods and emotions. Ushiro has become one of the most buzz-worthy emerging artists working today. With several recent magazine interviews and shows booked into 2009 from New York to Los Angeles and appearances coming at Art Basel, Ushiro has become one of the most talked about artists in the new contemporary movement.
