Douglas Ito

I like to take pictures of the things I make. I currently live in Los Angeles with my folks and I have been here my entire life. I graduated in 2011 with a BA in studio art from Long Beach State. I’m 26 and I am currently working at a gallery. My name is Douglas Takeshi Ito. When I went to look for a website I realized my name spells out Douglastakesashit and decided not to use my full name as my website address. I want to make art my entire life. I’m not really sure right now about graduate school. Right now I really just want to make work and make money to make my work.

This is how I see stuff.

It’s the easiest way for me to explain it. I like spray paint. I have been obsessed with patterns lately so I have been using them in my work. I have been making a lot of digital designs trying to find color and shape within those things. The pictures I have been making stemmed from an interest in product photography and now I think they are coming from my interest in art. I am a thief. I have been stealing all of my ideas from everything around me.
