Loe Lee #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth #APAHM #AAPIHM #ArtTuesday
Loe Lee is incredible artist out of New York City who recently designed Google’s 2022 AAPI Month digital hub theme. From byloelee:
For this project, I wanted to showcase the diversity of AAPI cultures without grouping them beneath one moniker. To do this, I researched different elements and symbols found across Asian and Pacific Islander art to incorporate in each scene. These elements include the hibiscus, mountain ridges and cherry blossoms, sampaguitas and water buffalo horns, elephant tusks and lotuses, and so much more. My hope is to illustrate our communities coming together, while at the same time celebrating their unique characteristics.
