“Happy 牛 Year” Ox Statue
I worked with the Chinese New Year Festival & Parade event committee, organized by the San Francisco Chinese Chamber of Commerce, to design an ox for the 2021 Chinese New Year celebration. I researched Chinese art, symbology, and history to create the design of the statue and the draft of the press release within the parameters of the theme and sponsor requirements. The final deliverables were created through an iterative process with input from the sponsor. The 5′ x 6′ statue is on public display in San Francisco International Airport from February 1, 2021 to March 15, 2021. The press release can be downloaded here.
“Valley of Hearts Delight”
The City of Sunnyvale commissioned a live chalk art performance for children at the 2018 State of the City event that paid tribute to the history of Sunnyvale. I designed a chalk mural invoking the acres of green grass and blooming fruit trees for which the region was once known. The audience members of the live performance were delighted and said the work made them feel happy.
