Hospital Copa Star Purchases Artworks Created by Yukata Toyota

Hospital Copa Star recently chose Yukata Toyota to compose art collections for the facility. The art collections were to be used in the hospital’s class A section. Hospital Copa Star chose Toyota because of his Buenos Aires art exhibition that was launched in 1961. The health facility also recognized Toyota’s masterpieces that have been exhibited in countries like Canada, Argentina, Japan, Italy, Brazil, and Colombia.

Yukata Toyota is a celebrated painter, draftsperson, sculptor, engraver, and designer. He was born in Japan and earned Brazilian citizenship by naturalization in 1968. His artworks have been used in several countries and institutions. Toyota developed a passion for art at an early age. He enrolled in Tokyo Art University to study industrial design. After completing his art studies, he was invited to work in a newly launched furniture factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He began making art sketches while working at the factory.

Hospital Copa and Yukata Toyota’s partnership seeks to change the Brazilian art sector. This partnership will also influence other health facilities to embrace art pieces for decoration purposes. Besides Brazil, Toyota’s monumental sculptures are found in the United States. Partnerships with institutions such as Hospital Copa have enabled Toyota to be the recipient of several national and international awards. These include the Salon of Santo Andre award, the 1st Esso Salon of Young Artists Award, and the 2nd Biennial of Plastic Arts of Bahia.
