"Murals on the Sky" speaks about the role of the individual in society, and the effects of society on the individual.
I want to understand: to what degree can society’s structure and culture influence a person's identity? I want to visualize the human emotions of anger and outrage that people express when they demand their rights. Too often human rights and health are sacrificed by the greediness and corruption of officials and corporations in the pursuit of their material goals.

This project builds on the theme that I launched in 2014: "All Roads Lead to People." My 3-dimensional outdoor installation further expands my art practice by introducing sculptural forms. In 2016, with the support of the Puffin Foundation, I completed 5 outdoor "murals."
I believe people should experience art in nontraditional and unexpected public spaces. This project was displayed in Glendale’s Deukmejian Wilderness Park in August, 2016.
