In 1938, when Harada was fourteen, the family returned to the United States when his mother remarried and settled in Oakland, California. \n</p><p>In 1942, he and his family were incarcerated at the <a href=\"/wiki/Tanforan_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Tanforan (detention facility)\">Tanforan Assembly Center</a>, where he began painting at the Tanforan art school founded by <a href=\"/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">Issei</a> artists <a href=\"/wiki/Chiura_Obata\" title=\"Chiura Obata\">Chiura Obata</a> and <a href=\"/wiki/George_Matsusaburo_Hibi\" title=\"George Matsusaburo Hibi\">George Matsusaburo Hibi</a>, along with other <a href=\"/wiki/Nisei\" title=\"Nisei\">Nisei</a> artists such as <a href=\"/wiki/Mine_Okubo\" title=\"Mine Okubo\">Miné Okubo</a> and <a href=\"/wiki/Frank_Taira\" title=\"Frank Taira\">Frank Taira</a>. He was soon moved to the concentration camp in <a href=\"/wiki/Topaz\" title=\"Topaz\">Topaz</a>, Utah, where he continued studying art at the school there, with Hibi as his mentor. When the War Relocation Authority distributed mandatory \"loyalty questionnaires\" to all inmates, Harada, who is kibei, decided to answer \"no-no\" to questions 27 and 28. His stepfather also answered \"no\" to question 28 and requested repatriation to Japan. Harada continued to paint in camp after being transferred to the <a href=\"/wiki/Moab/Leupp_Isolation_Centers_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Moab/Leupp Isolation Centers (detention facility)\">Leupp Isolation Center</a> in Arizona, before he was transferred in December 1943, to Tule Lake <a href=\"/wiki/Tule_Lake\" title=\"Tule Lake\">Tule Lake Segregation Center</a> in California, and placed in the stockade with several hundred other people. After he was released from the stockade and placed in a regular barrack room, he eventually joined the Tule Lake art school and resumed his painting. He even painted a portrait of a 1940s movie star onto the wall of his barrack, put a frame around it, and painted the frame. He was also commissioned by Dr. Marvin Opler, community analyst at Tule Lake, to paint a portrait of his two daughters and a few pen drawings of camp life. <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-1\"><a href=\"#cite_note-1\">[1]</a></sup> to the  In 1945, he held his first one-person exhibition in the ironing room of Tule Lake's Block 5. He and his family received permission to leave Tule Lake on March 17, 1946 and went to the San Francisco Bay Area, where they found temporary housing with many other Japanese families in Richmond, California. Although Harada renounced his American citizenship, it was a decision he regretted and through the work of attorney <a href=\"/wiki/Wayne_M._Collins\" title=\"Wayne M. Collins\">Wayne M. Collins</a>, he was able to restore his U.S. citizenship in 1959. \n</p><p>After the war, Harada enrolled at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, where he studied commercial design and illustration and was greatly influenced by the work of Ben Shahn. He supported himself by working as a fruit picker and gardener's helper and participated in annual exhibitions sponsored by the Oakland Art Gallery, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. He received the <a href=\"/wiki/James_D._Phelan\" title=\"James D. Phelan\">James D. Phelan</a> Award in 1949. His paintings are found in the collections of the San Francisco Fine Art Museum (which later became the M.H deYoung Museum and the California Palace of the Legion of Honor), the Autry Museum of Western Heritage, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. \n</p><p>He held his final two solo exhibitions in 1950 before turning to a new career in computer programming and working for the federal government, but following retirement, he returned to his painting. In 1998, he was featured in a show at the Pro Arts Gallery in Oakland called \"Arts After Incarceration.\" He currently lives in Berkeley, California. \n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a href=\"/wiki/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>Chang, Gordon H., Mark Dean Johnson, and Paul J.
