(Kendall Tani)

Kendall Tani is a “sometimes-artist” currently based in their hometown of Mammoth Lakes, CA. Much of their artwork, whether visual or written, draws from their personal experience as a fourth-generation Japanese American (Yonsei) navigating mental health and finding and creating community. Kendall has spent the past year focusing their creative energies into the multidisciplinary Asian American arts collaborative Bonbu Stories, which combines music, spoken word, taiko, and movement to explore vulnerability and connection.

When not making art or working at their family’s Japanese restaurant, they can be found baking and appreciating all things cute (especially dogs). You can find more of their work at kendalltani.com or on Instagram @_sowasowa and @bonbustories.
