Social media has never been more prominent in our lives than today. Our culture tends to be driven by phone apps that are easily accessible with the tap of a finger and the whole world is literally at our fingertips. We as a society are swayed by the images, music and videos that are embedded into our minds, thoughts, and behavior on a daily basis. I like to bring those social influences to life through my art.

As a Los Angeles native, for years I have enjoyed watching sports, listening to hip hop music, exploring different fashion trends, and indulged in movies and films. I've experimented with all types of mediums including pencil, colored pencils, pen, marker, pastels, and watercolor. I've practiced on paper, cardboard, wood, glass, and fabrics. But my most preferred medium is acrylic or oil paint on canvas. My style can be described as a mild distortion between reality and animation. Some may say it has a "pop art" appearance. I like contrasting, opaque colors with clean lines that will give the viewer a solid and aesthetically pleasing visual.

Five Ways to Enjoy #LittleTokyo after Work


Working in Little Tokyo has its perks. You can grab a coffee and pastry at many of the cafes in our neighborhood, or take a stroll down the block for a quick break. You can also pop into one of several supermarkets including Niijiya, Marukai and Mitsuwaa for a delicious lunch to go. But what do you do after the work day is done?

Here are some fun ideas to inspire you, in case you want to extend your stay in J-town:

  1. Walk over to many museums nearby: the Japanese National Museum, Go For Broke, MOCA Geffen, Broad, Hauser & Wirth, MOCA Contemporary.
  2. Watch a play at East West Players, the premiere Asiaan American theater company located in the history Union Center for the Arts on First Street.
  3. Grab some boba at Milk + T, Snociety, Twinkle Brown Sugar or Gong Cha. Otherwise, head to happy hour at Far Bar or Wolf & Crane.
  4. Enjoy a workout at Grand Park and relax by the fountain works close to Walt Disney Hall, home to the LA Philharmonic Association.
  5. Grab some friends for bowling at XLanes or karaoke at Max on the third floor of the Little Tokyo Market place.
