The representation of women is often either white-washed or objectified. While growing up in Vietnam, the societal norm that Asian women are expected to have pale skin in order to be seen as beautiful became apparent to me. Although this norm is not followed by all Asian women, their representation in the media, especially in East Asia, continues to reinforce this norm. To address the lack of diversity and racial discrepancies in women's representation, my work seeks to celebrate collective empowerment and highlight the beauty of different skin tones.

What is a Giclée Print?
The word “Giclée” is French for “sprayed ink.” Today, the term is used to describe a sophisticated inkjet printmaking process which creates the highest quality fine art reproductions. All of our inhouse prints are manufactured in this way. Giclée printing offers extra-fine image resolution, helping to retain a higher degree of detail from the original fine art or photographic images. What are the dispatch times?
Posters, Mini, Small and Medium prints are generally dispatched within a 10 days of purchase. What happened if my print is damaged during transit?
Large prints are dispatched within three weeks of purchase *Note: COVID may affect normal dispatching schedules
We require photo proof of the damaged print within 7 days. If the damage is confirmed to occur during transit, we will gladly send a replacement.
