I combined my pride of my cultural background with my love for animals to create the pieces of this concentration. My artwork utilizes oil on canvas. Through observation of thoughtfully taken poses, my work revolves around careful rendering of skin tone and fabric and free-flowing, Chinese zodiac inspired designs that reveal both a literal and figurative connection with my cultural background. I juxtaposed the more stiff and geometric figure of my body to the flowing lines and organic shapes of the zodiac design to showcase the beauty of the animals. Both pieces follow the aforementioned plan, differing in pose and design that best showcases the animals.
