ART LOVE FOUNDER: Erin Chung
Is a visual artist and designer based in New York City and Seoul.
I attempt to portray the lives of the most vulnerable, as well as coming to their aid. As part of my work to gain justice for human trafficking victims, I create portraits that evoke their experiences. I use abstraction, symbolism and color to impart a mood somewhere between tragic and heroic. The suffering of the victims is horrible; I also want to depict something iconic. Through portraying their struggle, as well as through direct organizing action, I want help them and others around the world escape this kind of ordeal. I started Art Love to organize other artists who want to make work in service to ending oppression and helping raise up the fallen. We are all human, everything that happens to humanity happens to us.
