Shirley Yang

My name is Shirley Yang. This self-portrait has a touch of a dark aesthetic, which is evident in the artwork. For example, I depicted dark makeup around the eyes and incorporated asymmetrical, exaggerated, and peculiar patterns in the background and clothing. But I didn’t want the style to be overly harsh, so I intentionally drew many cute little animals on the mask. Why is there a mask on the face? It’s because of the global pandemic, where we were required to wear masks during classes. So I portrayed myself wearing a mask based on how I looked at that time. I also hid my signature on the clothing!
