Ken Muramoto’s art blends his fascination for trains and landscapes with his love of art. From his model train collection to family visits to historic locations, Mr. Muramoto’s depictions are grounded in experience. Born in 1993 and diagnosed with autism at age 3, Mr. Muramoto had an early gift for drawing that was nurtured by his parents. Enrolled in art classes with Susana Terrell since Kindergarten, Mr. Muramoto garnered respect and admiration by the detailed artistry and versatile imagination present in his art.
Mr. Muramoto has benefited from his attendance in Santa Cruz and Pajaro Valley schools, Cabrillo College, and Aptos Post Secondary Special Services. He has been the recipient of numerous awards in community shows and two Santa Cruz County Fair poster contests. Mr. Muramoto is the featured artist for the 2015 and 2016 Orchard Supply Hardware® Train Calendars and the youngest artist in the train calendars’ forty one year history. In January of 2016 he joined the Clarity Arts project in Santa Cruz, CA. Mr. Muramoto’s extraordinary artistic dedication and the public reception of his work promises a fulfilling artistic career.
