Background: Miyoshi received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Tokyo-based Keio University, and earned two master's degrees, a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2000 and a Master in Fine Arts in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology. Miyoshi has exhibited work in solo and group shows in museums and galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Pittsburgh and Japan, and also showed his work in the 2012 Oregon Biennial of Contemporary Art.
