Tina Yu, “Always and Forever”
January 21st – February 19th, 2023
Haven Gallery is pleased to present New York based artist Tina Yu, for her first solo show “Always and Forever” at the gallery. Tina Yu is known for her colorful sculptures of animals, people and imaginative chimeras, doused in mythologies from her Chinese heritage, pop culture and her own personal narratives, creating fresh and timeless artworks. Her imagination is a kaleidoscope of dreamy motifs, vibrant hues and nostalgia, bringing her characters to sentience in order to share their own tales. Yu’s works are intrinsically inspired by nature and the presence of both animals and humans to craft folklore and jubilant emotions. A re-telling of tales laced with sentimentality and buoyancy brings the viewer back to their childhood mind, where the worlds color, beauty and creativity flourish. About Tina Yu Tina is a Chinese-raised New York-based sculptor/artist. After developing an interest in sculpting in college, she decided to pursue her passion after getting a BFA degree in Graphic Design from Pratt Institute. Drawing inspiration from movies, animals, nature, Chinese culture, family, childhood memories, and imaginations, Tina brings her imaginary characters to life through sculpting.
