Kio Griffith is a Los Angeles-based graphic designer, visual/sound artist, independent curator, and event producer. He has exhibited in galleries and alternative spaces in Japan and throughout the United States.
He has shown work as a solo artist, in a collaboration, or group locally and internationally at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Soundwalk (Long Beach CA), REDCAT, Track 16 Gallery, New Image Art Gallery, Rocket Gallery (Japan), Gallery Lara (Japan), Mathilde Hatzenberger Gallery (Belgium), ADC Contemporary Art, Eagle Rock Center for the Arts, ResBox, Jaus Gallery, RAID Projects, Giant Robot (GR2) Gallery, Highways Performance Space and was the guest composer for the opening of the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Griffith's work materializes from associations of everyday activities as ideas to map out the streams of consciousness interrelating with events from another time and space. The generated references through mixed media and digital markings resonate a range of elements from traditional folk art to contemporary graphics. Extruding from the fascination of music and noise, Griffith's work shifts toward exploratory findings of unseen language that bring it into an altered statement.
