Estria Miyashiro

Artist Bio-
Estria Miyashiro is an internationally recognized mural artist and the Co-Founder and Creative Director of The Estria Foundation, (TEF) a nonprofit organization using public art to transform communities and bring attention to important local issues. TEF creates innovative public art projects and education programs using public art as a catalyst for community engagement.
Along with numerous mural commissions, Estria’s recent focus has been creating the WaterWrites international mural series and directing the Estria Battle, the premier US graffiti competition. His latest project, MeleMurals, is a series of 20 murals across the Hawaiian Islands on stories, place and people.
Estria began painting in Hawaii in 1984 and has completed nearly 1,000 murals worldwide. He was an influential leader of the "Golden Age" of Writing (1980s) in San Francisco, pioneered painting techniques, and is one of the originators of the stencil tip.
Since 1993 he has taught graffiti classes and lectured at universities on graffiti's social and political impact. He garnered national attention with his arrest for graffiti in 1994 appearing on CNN and the National Enquirer.
Estria's mural clients include President Clinton, Vodaphone, Gansevoort Hotel, Oakland Museum of California, Toyota, MTV, McDonald's, Sega, McKesson, Nokia, the Mills Corporation, the Cities of San Francisco and Oakland, and the County of Alameda.
He has served the community through his cultural work for over 25 years.
