Janice Tanaka

United States of America

Janice Tanaka, born in Hollywood CA, studied music composition at the Conservatorio Internacional de Musica, studied and performed with the Allegro American Ballet Company, and fine art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After traveling and living in a variety of countries, she observed, “what a sad but beautiful world it is", while her “profound respect for mankind is punctuated by the knowledge that all is not right with the way we treat ourselves and each other”. Influenced by these early observations and experiences, her work takes its form in experimental documentaries, narratives, and visually poetic philosophical inquiries that reflect on the complexities of human nature, through our cultural, social, and political behavior.
