Statement

Bio

Nina Vichayapai is a soft sculptural installation artist who uses fabric as a language to communicate identity. Her work explores themes of immigrant home making, migrations and identity, and the environment as an allusion to histories of colonization. Her work has been shown in galleries, community spaces, and in residencies across the West Coast. In addition to her practice she also works and volunteers as a museum educator to promote accessibility to the arts and history by increasing awareness of diverse and underrepresented narratives. She graduated from the California College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and currently lives in Seattle.
