Historical Context:
"My philosophy of art is that it should be accessible to everyone: physically, visually, emotionally, and intellectually. To achieve this, I paint realistic forms within simple narratives for the youngest viewers. Layered upon this are more subtle gestures, juxtapositions, and symbols from art, literature, the theater, and various cultures that more complex and mature minds can appreciate. My art usually reflects personal interests in people, their relationships to art, design, the natural world, and to each other, their levels of awareness and their roles in society." -Ed Wong-Ligda
