Artist statement: Annie Hong (a.k.a. Hootnannie) is a visual and graphic artist whose bold and colorful work has been featured throughout the United States and South Korea. Vibrant eye-catching patterns and whimsical wordplay instantly capture viewers’ attention, hypnotizing them in a maze of colors. Often challenging contemporary art narratives and voicing underrepresented perspectives, Hootnannie’s work is inspired by their experience navigating the world as a queer, gender-nonconforming, first-generation Asian-American artist. This mural is a colorful and vibrant remembrance, honoring dreams undreamt and tears uncried in lives lost to senseless tragedies.
Medium type: Paint (acrylic, oil, etc.)
