This colored pencil portrait captures the experience of living "between cultures" in modern society. The USA logo on the jacket signifies the challenge of navigating and balancing the, at times, conflicting cultural differences between Asian and American culture. The red and yellow colored yarn tangled up entering into the mouth signifies the merging of various cultures as one crafts their own unique cultural identity as they grow up.
