Taiko Chandler


Taiko is a visual artist working in printmaking, installation, and sculpture, who lives and works in Denver, Colorado. She was born and raised in Nagano, Japan, and worked as nurse in Japan and the UK. Since taking her first class at the Art Students League of Denver, in 2011, art has become her career.

Taiko’s installation, made on-site with 150 Monotype prints on Tyvek, was part of the “Hokusai: Inspiration and Influence” exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, in 2023. Taiko’s work has been exhibited in Colorado (including solo exhibitions at Littleton Museum, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, and Denver Botanic Gardens) and other states and numerous print fairs throughout the U.S. Her work is part of private and public collections in the U.S. and Japan, including the Cleveland Clinic Art Program, University of Colorado Denver Business school, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (NY).
