He attended Oakland High School before receiving a scholarship at the California School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied briefly. In 1924, he moved to Chicago, Illinois, and then New York to work at a photography studio in Long Island and study at the New York Photography Institute, with the hopes of returning to Hollywood and working as a cinematographer in the film industry.\n </p>\n <p>\n  When his father fell ill in the late 1920s, Uno returned to the Bay Area and settled in Alameda, California, working as an interior decorator and later as a gardener. According to a biographical sketch of Uno published in\n  <i>\n   Asian American Art: A History, 1850-1970\n  </i>\n  , Uno was encouraged by the success of actor-director Sessue Hayakawa, and tried to find work in Hollywood but was not successful.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-1\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-1\">\n    [1]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n  However, he continued his artistic pursuits by painting and was married in 1931.\n </p>\n <p>\n  During World War II, Uno, his wife Hisaye and three children were sent first to the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Fresno_(detention_facility)/\" title=\"Fresno (detention facility)\">\n   Fresno\n  </a>\n  Assembly Center in California, and then to the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Jerome/\" title=\"Jerome\">\n   Jerome\n  </a>\n  and\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Rohwer/\" title=\"Rohwer\">\n   Rohwer\n  </a>\n  concentration camps in Arkansas, where they remained until the end of the war. At Fresno, Uno began experimenting with woodcarving, using a butter knife to create wooden sculptures and masks, since traditional carving tools were considered contraband and prohibited. He also created an impressive body of work while incarcerated, including portrait and landscape paintings. At the Rohwer camp, Uno was also an instructor at the camp's art school with his longtime friend,\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Henry_Sugimoto/\" title=\"Henry Sugimoto\">\n   Henry Sugimoto\n  </a>\n  . He also began the study and practice of shigin, a Japanese form of spoken poetry, which he continued after he was released from camp and had resettled in California.\n </p>\n <p>\n  In 1957, Uno resumed his study at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California, and exhibited his paintings at the Oakland Museum, the Wight Art Gallery at UCLA, and at San Francisco State University. In 1980, the Japanese American Anthology Committee included Uno's paintings in one of the earliest multi-generational anthologies of Japanese American writing and art, entitled\n  <i>\n   Ayumi\n  </i>\n  . His work is included in the permanent collection at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Uno died on April 3, 1989 in Oakland, California.\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Patricia_Wakida/\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">\n    Patricia Wakida\n   </a>\n  </b>\n </div>\n <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n  Wakida, Patricia\n </div>\n <div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n  <h2>\n   <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n    For More Information\n   </span>\n  </h2>\n  <div class=\"section_content\">\n   <p>\n    Chang, Gordon H., Johnson, Mark Dean, and Karlstrom, Paul J. editors.
