Artist Statement

I am fascinated by pop culture, social media, cultural adaptation, and identity formation. My work explores publications, illustrations, sequential arts, videos, installations, and performances. With a strong desire to communicate, I believe in Maximalism - the philosophy of “more is more.” Life is complicated; we have many identities when we grow up. Those identities and labels interact, struggle and fight with others and finally tell who we are. The usage of contrasting colors, illustration of multiple subjects, and narration of a long story all resemble my belief and introduce a world to the audience where they can forget their stress and own new identity.

Other places to catch her: Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube. She loves to collaborate and any opportunities!
