“Flourishing Out of a Pandemic” Digital Art Piece – Kaylene Moua/Hmong Innovating Politics (HIP)
Displayed digitally via HIP social media pages, website & email, and in regional HIP offices.
This digital art piece encourages the community to protect themselves and others against COVID-19. The image itself shows the road the community has traveled as they flourish in this new type of normal. This journey is represented by three trees: the first has images of preventative care through testing regularly and wearing masks; the second shows images of growth as the community is vaccinated; and finally, the third is fully grown, representing how the combination of vaccinations, preventative care, and testing regularly lead to fruition.
About the Artist
Kaylene describes herself as a Hmong individual born and raised in the state of California. She studied graphic design in school and grew up preferring pens and markers to books. She now works with hand lettering and modern calligraphy, in addition to graphic arts.
