We recently spoke to Bad Luck Club artist Jen Tong about her artwork in the upcoming show at myplasticheart. Jen, a graduate from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, grew up in San Francisco but currently lives in Brooklyn, where she has immersed herself in what she describes as a “thriving and nurturing art community” through her illustrations, prints and comics.
Here’s what she had to say about her artwork and the Bad Luck Club show:
“Like Aya’s work, narrative plays a significant role in my pieces. The lemon people depicted in my two pieces come from a colorful universe elaborated in my comics. I am influenced by a lot of comic books; when I am not making illustrations and prints, I am making mini-comics and screen-printed comic art books. I feel very privileged to be involved in this show with such a talented group of artists. The fact that we all happen to be ladies is fantastic as well!”
