Mai Tạ

MAI TA (b.1997 in Saigon, Vietnam,) a NY-based artist + illustrator
Mai Ta works primarily in gouache. Her subject matter centers around her experience as a Vietnamese woman, often paired with questions about her place in the Western hemisphere. Her love for the intricacies of her culture always shadows her works, giving the viewers an opportunity to see Vietnam for the country that it is. Not what it's been decided to be seen as.
