Artist Statement: The bold and colorful works of Annie Hong, aka Hootnannie (they/she), have been featured throughout the United States and South Korea. With painting as their primary medium, their insatiable curiosity towards all that is visual and beautiful has led them to venture into the worlds of murals, body painting, digital art, installations, and wearable art. Hong’s works can be recognized by their use of vibrant and colorful patterns and whimsical play with words. Their work is greatly inspired by their experience navigating the world as a queer, gender nonconforming, first-generation Asian American artist, aiming to challenge the narrative of the current contemporary art dialogue by pushing for the visual voices of the underrepresented.
Medium type: Paint (acrylic, oil, etc.)
