About the Artist

Growing up between two cultures, I've always been in a position to compare/ contrast and this fascination to understand cultural identity is what guides my work.

Just like navigating through cultures and languages, I also work with different styles.

In "The People" series, I study heritage, hope, and belonging through faceless figures. Although the figures present mundane scenes, synthetism and a painterly style create an alternate reality made of color and form.

 

It is important to celebrate culture, but what about those who have been taken away from their culture? Many times I have felt misplaced or misidentified, like an object found outside of its place of origin. "In Situ?" is a series that dives into this concept using ancient artifacts as a metaphor. This series experiments with storytelling and pop art to create stylized characters. No matter the style, my work is intended to spark conversation about cultural diversity and heritage.
