Bruce Yonemoto (b.1949) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, USA.

Bruce Yonemoto has developed a body of work which positions itself within the overlapping intersections of art and the cinema screen. He believes that the composition of mass media has become a new historical site of the domination of human behavior. 

Yonemoto has participated in many important exhibitions, festivals and biennials, including: “Bravento NOVO”, Chi-Wen Gallery, Taipei (TW, 2018); The Future of My Desire“, Tate Modern, London (UK, 2017); “An Asian Survey – Bruce Yonemoto”, Hong-gah Museum, Taipei (TW, 2015); “The Whole Earth.
