#immigrantinthecity

Those are my first artworks of my new collection #immigrantinthecity. This collection is about my experience in NYC as an immigrant some funny, some frustrating, some lonely… and of course positive body image and sexuality by creating visuals that defies sexual and body taboos by experimenting with new techniques and medium.
