Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode featuring the award-winning sculptor Yoshikawa Wright.
MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Yoshikawa Wright grew up living and traveling through the US, Europe and Japan. These experiences exposed him to a wide variety of cultures and art. As a child he was a gifted artist and he would go on to become an award-winning sculptor of stone, creating visually stunning and mood-transforming stone water features.
Yoshikawa Wright was born in Japan to an American father in the military and a Japanese mother. At three months of age, his family relocated to Alaska and thereafter moved frequently. As a child he was inspired both by the beauty he saw in nature and his mother’s calligraphy and painting. Following in his mother’s footsteps, Yoshikawa won his first art competition in elementary school. While attending the University of Colorado Boulder, he took his first course in sculpting stone. After a stone sculpting apprenticeship in Japan, he made the decision that he would dedicate his life to becoming a sculptor, regardless of the hardships such a career choice may pose. After moving to Los Angeles, he became known for creating stunning stone-sculpted water features. His award-winning works are featured in art galleries and commercial spaces throughout the country and internationally. By way of example, Yoshikawa’s sculptures are featured in Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and the Huntington Art Museum of Pasadena. His Los Angeles Fallen Firefighters Memorial has been highly acclaimed. Yoshikawa and his wife, Gigi, a classical pianist, live and work in Los Angeles.
