The Bind Contemporary Art Exhibition

Bachelor of Design
Visual Communication

The Bind Contemporary Art Exhibition celebrates Asian art and artists and contributes to cultural diversity in New Zealand.  

With art, makers and viewers can be connected through visuals and ideas. This exhibition creates a space for Asian New Zealand artists to display works that challenge expectations and celebrate the diversity of art in New Zealand.  

The rise of Asian misrepresentation in Western countries encouraged me to positively display Asian culture in New Zealand. Asian New Zealand art and artists aren’t well known. Because of this, my aim is to celebrate New Zealand’s vast cultural diversity and to bring awareness of this issue in our society.  

After finishing my degree at Ara, I’m planning to pursue a career in print design and illustration. I’m hoping to get back into painting in my spare time, as this is something I’m also passionate about.
