Taiko Chandler


Taiko is an artist based in Denver Colorado, primarily working in printmaking, print-based installation. Taiko was born and raised in Nagano, Japan. After working as a nurse in Japan over 10 years, her relocation began to UK, several cities in the US. Since she took her first art class which was printmaking at the Art Students League of Denver in 2011, art became important part of her life professionally and personally.

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).
