Olive ⌈ 美真 | みどり⌋ Kimoto
is a Los Angeles born and raised musician, DJ, creative director, and multimedia artist.
She can be found twirling in flower fields to Cocteau Twins, dreaming about utopian futures at community events, planning her next adventure across the world, and professing her unconditional love for her friends at her local wine bar.
Olive writes and performs ambient-pop music under her name, Olive Kimoto. Currently, she's finishing up her first solo single with producer Chrome Sparks. She is a member of the now inactive shoegaze band, Crescendo, and occasionally adds vocals and synths to other projects.
As a multimedia artist, Olive is building portals through sound, video, performance, and found objects, exploring both cultural and digital heritage. Her work has been shown by MOCA, Museum of Contemporary Art, Human Resources and Bozo Mag.
She most recently worked as Creative & Programs Lead of Laconic, the source of proof for web3. As a creative director and graphic designer, she has also completed projects for Michelle Obama, Goldenvoice, and Feminist AI.
