Visit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum to see the portrait of former President Obama by Kehinde Wiley. The flowers in the background have symbolic meaning, the Chrysanthemum is the the official flower of Chicago, jasmine stands for Hawaii and the African blue lilies represent his late father from Kenia.
🔘For many years, people have been complaining that they have not been able to innovate in their decoration. We introduce them mosaic. Nowadays, mosaic art is used as an application, such as doors, parquet, table, staircase, ceiling and etc.
🔘The mosaic brings together colored pieces of materials such as wood, ivory, shells, jewelry etc. The mosaic is the same as mosaic art. That is, the artist makes a really valuable work by putting together pieces of material together.
It's been an exciting and incredible few days at Art Basel Miami Beach for us! The response and engagement with the brilliance of Tiffany Chung's works has been overwhelming and so rewarding for us @tylerrollinsfineart, and we wanted to share a few pictures of the booth and her new work with you.
If you're in Miami, please stop by! 2 more days to go

I was a Victim and I am a Survivor of Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. The last domestic relationship was in 2017 and I had enough courage to end the relationship immediately. I was that little girl who was abused, I was that teen girl who was bullied in school, I was that teen girl that went through sexual assault and domestic violence, I was that woman that got raped, I was that woman that went through depression, suicide and heartbreak. On March 25, 2018 I woke up and smelled the roses. As a result, I've been blessed to connect with other women and men who can relate to my story, Wo/Men who are victims(currently in pain) and others are survivors(but remain silent because we don't know how to heal the internal wounds that only appear as scars externally). -
This year, 2018 taught me to EMBRACE all my imperfections. I had to isolate myself, spent many days and nights alone, facing my insecurities what once hurt no longer keeps me in the dark, and it is through my story expressed through artwork and poetry that I began to heal my wounds, I was able to embrace all of my imperfections looking back at me in the mirror. I'm proud of myself for having my first art exhibition on October 5, 2018 collab with Leaping Llamas Gallery, forever grateful for the opportunity to add colour to Downtown Topeka, Kansas. I ended a relationship with my classic muse on November 6, 2018. I will never lose myself in the process of loving someone ever again, self worth is worth more and I love my solitude.
As this year ends, I'm getting ready to CREATE wholeheARTtedly moving forward into the new year. I wear my heART on my sleeve, but I will no longer fall in love with "potential", I love proof/actions! I was that tiny seed that in order to grow, I needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, and struggled to reach the light. Darkness brings forth essence. 🌹
