SHIRTS

The idea...

Why t-shirts? They are a common connection among most people around the world, and they are also a unique storytelling canvas. As an introvert, it’s hard for someone like me to speak to the world through a megaphone. Furthermore, by using something so common to the human experience such as a t-shirt to find my artistic voice, I have been able to analyze the cultural issues around me in a unique way. I draw with the intention of creating a mirror so that when others view my work they can connect with my story through their own experiences. Conceptualizing these drawings allows me to have a voice as an Asian-American artist. Creating my own space within the larger cultural discourse allows me to sleep at night and motivates me to continue creating every day.
