Join us to discover the journey of Portland-based artist Horatio Law as he shares how he became a professional artist and how he collaborates with many different parties in executing public art commissions.

More on Horatio Law here - www.horatiolaw.com

Horatio Hung-Yan Law was born in Hong Kong to Chinese parents and moved to the US at the age of sixteen. With this multi-cultural background, he has developed an artistic practice whose subjects include the Chinese immigrant’s experience, reinterpretations of cultural icons, trans-cultural adoptions, the Iraq War, and the current culture of consumption. His work often tackles weighty subjects with ephemeral and unexpected materials, creating quiet, conflicting, meditative and evocative works. In studio work, public art, and community residencies, Law deploys common cultural artifacts to explore issues of identity, memory, and the loss and gain of cross-cultural struggle in the evolving global community. Horatio Law resides in Portland, Oregon.
