I’m working on a pretty big project with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. We’re creating a mural in honor of The Legendary Roots Crew – one of my favorite bands. It’s a pretty dope project to be involved in. I’m working with Amber Design Collective – a Philly based group of accomplished muralists and artists.
I’ll be posting more about the mural as it goes on. We’re still in the beginning stages as of now. Here are a few pics of from the project so far:

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Iran To America To Being, Oil and paper on canvas, 22×28 inches, 2011
Self portrait. The background is a paper composition of an English to Farsi translation dictionary, a photograph of my Iranian family members in Iran, and a letter mailed from Iran to my father in America.
The paper was pasted onto canvas, and I painted in oil on top if it. This is something I did once before in a similar piece, Standing From What Was. I like the aesthetic. I’ll continue to explore this process.

With Leilani Montes (Guatemalan-Mexican) and Ninotchka Rosca (Filipina) as curators, the multi-layered art show ARRIVALS/DEPARTURES: Women’s Experience of Migration Under Globalization brings together the aesthetics and community engagement of eleven visual artists, one performance artist, one filmmaker and one writer in an unprecedented trans-ethnic event.
Twelve of the participating artists are:
* Ana Bravo (Mexican) http://anabravo.com/
* Ann Kwak (Korean/Hawaiian)
* Athena Magcase-Lopez (Filipina) http://www.athenasantosmagcaselopez.com/
* Besos Not Bombs (Armenian/Latina) http://www.besosnotbombs.com/
* Erin Yoshi (Japanese) http://www.erinyoshi.com/
* Favianna Rodriguez (Chicana) http://www.favianna.com/
* Isela Xospa (Mexican) http://www.iselaxospa.com/
* Joanne Ludwig (Thai/German) http://joanneludwig.tumblr.com/
* Leilani Montes (Guatemalan/Mexican) http://www.leilanimontes.com/
* Miatta Kawinzi (Kenyan/Liberian) http://www.bit.ly/hZYO9W
* Mona Lunot (Filipina)
* Tatyana Fazlalizaldeh (Iranian/Black) http://www.tlynnfaz.com/
ARRIVALS/DEPARTURES also incorporates two special offerings:
* One Journey – a one-woman play by Yadira De La Riva (Mexican) about life on the US-Mexico border. Tickets to the play, which is scheduled for Friday, March 18th, at 7 pm, are $9 each and will be available at the opening reception and online at http://onejourneyaf3irm.eventbrite.com/
* Poets & Artists Panel on closing night which will address and respond to the exhibit and issues related to migration
ARRIVALS/DEPARTURES conveys the message that migration is not simply a legal, labor, procedural or policy issue; it is a life-changing experience for the im/migrants and their children.
The artists are backed in this endeavor by the multi-ethnic members of AF3IRM NY/NJ and the show is co-sponsored by Zero Capital and other groups.
The show will be on view until March 31st, Monday through Friday, from 1 to 5pm. Viewing outside these hours can be arranged by calling Project Reach at 212-966-4227.
Very excited about this show!

I was introduced to Elizabeth Colomba‘s work a couple of weeks ago at an art reception for There Is No Looking Glass, a group exhibition featuring her as well as my friend Andrea Chung, who is also a fantastic artist.
As with most paintings, digital photos of the work do not do the work any justice. Her work in person is very, very impressive.
I’m a big fan of Vermeer and Colomba clearly takes influence from him.

Me as a graduating 5th grader.
RE:FORM SCHOOL is a high profile group art exhibition, event series and public awareness campaign, taking place in New York City. Thousands of artists, parents, community leaders, educators and grass roots organizers are coming together in a vibrant and creative space in order to shine a light on what is working, explore the potential of what might be and celebrate the role imagination, creativity and innovation will play in the process.
Very glad to be participating in this exhibition along side some really amazing artists.
For the website, each artist was interviewed about their participation. Read mine here.

Here are a few pics from my show “For Women” that opened on September 17th. The show was a huge success. We received a large turn out and a great response to the work.
Thanks to everyone who made it out and contributed to the intriguing conversations the show spawned.
