Many of you have been asking when you can see my work in #NY? πŸ’πŸ» I'm excited to be showing with @overtheinfluencehk in their debut pop-up exhibition in Soho this week! My painting "Epic Annihilation" β˜„οΈ is on view, alongside artists @invaderwashere @cleonpeterson @vhils & more.
The pop-up is located at 393 Broadway in Soho, and runs from June 16th-23rd. There will be an opening event tonightπŸŒ› from 5-10pm, and the pop-up daytime hours are from 11am-6pm.

I love seeing my paintings in their new homes!! Thank you @winstonlee.art for sharing this pic of my painting "I Do Not Know My Enemy (Girl)" πŸ‘ΌπŸ’ͺ in your amazing collection! πŸ™ She looks so pretty in her float frame! πŸ˜»πŸ‘
These portraits are of a child that is posed to defeat the "enemy" of this world (the fighting poses mimic those of Japanese action heroes) and addresses my own questions like, "Who is our true enemy? Why do we choose to fight, and who to kill?" The pose in this piece is inspired by #SailorMoon, specifically a pose she makes when she says, "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!" I painted her for my recent solo show #MementoMori @coreyhelfordgallery.

Detail ✨

Here's a peek at a new piece I'm working on. πŸ‘€ I've been thinking a lot about the afterlife while painting this. In Buddhism, death is not the end of life, it is merely the end of the body we inhabit in this life, but our spirit will remain and seek out through the need of attachment, attachment to a new body and new life. Some of the motifs of death I'm using in this piece are a reflection of this philosophy. πŸ™ #FridayFeeling

This Saturday, 7-11pm, @coreyhelfordgallery is bringing back their popular group show "Art Collector Starter Kit" featuring 12x12" sized pieces from over 50 artists! Here's my contribution, entitled "Memento Mori Shi". (previous postπŸ’—)
This work centers on the theme of Memento Mori. πŸ’€ I put the Japanese character for shi ("death") on the upper left, as this is an angel sent from the spirit world to be a hero to the humans. This character, whom I call "Usagi Chan" (rabbit hero), is surrounded by "murmurs" represented by cute, happy stickers, which overlap with images of skulls - these multi-layers are my way of suggesting the work's complicated meaning.
