For The Love of Tiger Art Show Opening

My favorite artist, Martin Hsu will be commemorating the 2010 Chinese New Year with a special art show, For the Love of the Tiger.

According to the Chinese horoscopes (and as my mom like to remind me every time she yells at me), those born in the year of the Tiger are passionate, independent, quick-tempered and competitive. For Martin, this Chinese New Year is also about bringing awareness to the endangered tigers of the world.

Traditionally, tigers are the guardians of children in Chinese folktales.  Under the circumstances, I thought it’d be interesting to reverse the roles and have the children become protectors for such an important animal.

So kick off 2010 by supporting the arts with this special show at Munky King in Los Angeles. For the Love of the Tiger also features the talented works of Andrew Brandou and will run from February 11th to March 11th, 2010. See you there!

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
