Virtual Artist Talk

Oct 25, 2020

On artist Moe Satt's Facebook Zoom Talk Series, "Artists & Artworks I Admire" which took place on Oct 26th, 2020, I shared a few artists I met or whose work I admired at my alma mater, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and After.


I presented the slides in Myanmar. My talk centers around female bodies and sexuality, racial and gender identities, nature, spirituality and religious icons.
