On Friday, May 2nd & Saturday, May 3rd, let the Punk-kids of the 80’s and 90’s dominate Art Share LA.
Tomata led the Kidz to New York, where he met his proto-punk peers from the CBGB scene mixing with the Ramones, the Mumps, New York Dolls and the Stilletos. 1975 came and Tomata returned to Seattle to form the Tupperwares, one third of the TMT trio that ushered in Seattle’s version of the late 70’s punk scene. Shortly after, Tomata relocated to Los Angeles where The Tupperwares became The Screamers. The band would set the Hollywood scene a light with their guitar-less synth-punk sound, selling out the Whiskey and the Roxy led by Tomata’s electric performances. They became one of the most famous bands to never record a proper record.
In the 80’s, Tomata embarked on a new career as a folk painter, painting vibrant portraits of “of his favorite artists and other plain folks” exhibited in storefront galleries from Miami to San Francisco.
