I was interviewed by Blanca Herrera for her show "Gente Que Inspira" for
PROGENIE Art show- 3 Generations of Chinese Panamanian Artists
With much happiness I invite you to my first solo show in my native country. We have been planning this event for 5 years, which 2 of them are better forgotten. I will be exhibiting 26 works that represent my artistic journey. I hope you can accompany to celebrate the colors of Life!
On this occasion we have invited Manuel Chong Neto (rip) and Nicole Rumaldo Choy, to present 3 generations of Chinese Panamanian artists.
La emoción me embarga. Con mucho honor les invito a mi primer solo show en mi tierra natal. Llevamos planeándolo por más de 5 años, de los cuales dos es mejor pasarlos al olvido. Presentaré 26 obras que representan mi recorrido artístico. ¡Espero que me acompañes a conocer mi obra y así celebrar los colores de la vida!
En esta ocasión hemos invitado a Manuel Chong Neto (qepd) y Nicole Rumaldo Choy, presentado así 3 generaciones de artistas chinos panameños .
Son muchos los motivos para celebrar el primer año, nuestro aniversario de papel, con obra sobre este soporte realizada por algunos de los amigos que en estos meses se han convertido en nuestra familia. El hilo conductor de la selección ha sido la profunda carga emotiva que estos artistas, de trayectorias, estilos y medios diferentes han inyectado a su obra.
Hace poco más de un año, iniciamos nuestra plataforma con el objetivo de promover el arte de Panamá. Nos pareció oportuno abrir una vía para presentar buen arte en espacios alternativos. Y aunque nunca imaginamos que las circunstancias nos llevarían al camino de lo virtual, asumimos el cambio con la certeza de que se convertiría en uno de los principales sitios para proyectar nuestros objetivos.

The winner of this will paint a mural on a 126 feet tall by 62 feet wide wall located on the west side of the new Norwegian Terminal north facade. The wall on which the mural will be placed faces the MacArthur Causeway, which means that the mural will be seen not only by the more than 1.2 million passengers that will be using the Norwegian Terminal but also by all the millions of passengers that arrive and depart from the PortMiami terminals and by hundreds of thousands of people that use the MacArthur Causeway every year.
The winner of the Norwegian Cruise Line Nader Museum Award will be awarded a grand prize of US $125,000 consisting of $100,000 cash prize and in addition a residency worth $25,000 at the Oceania Artist Loft.
In MaiYap's hands, the corals take on a whole new meaning as they become transformed on canvas in rich colors, dramatic textures, and abstract forms. She hopes these paintings will serve to highlight and make a difference in the way people view coral reefs, thereby joining her in collective effort to protect them. “Shades of Harmony” emphases the delicate balance of nature, playing such a vital role in all their survival. We, as a society, must do whatever is necessary to preserve our coral reefs for generations to come.

Our Florida Reef System is the largest coral reef ecosystem in the continental US, with its extensive shallow coral reefs that span 358 miles from the Dry Tortugas near Key West, north along the Atlantic coast to Martin County. They provide us with many benefits. Not only are they home to many species of wildlife, but they are integral to the economy of Florida’s tourism industry, including to commercial and recreational fisherman and divers. Additionally, they act as a natural buffer for Florida’s shoreline, helping to lessen the strength of waves, providing natural support for coastal resilience.
The Palette Knife Artists of Miami and Miami Shades of Clay are unified in drawing attention to the imperiled coral reef habitats deteriorating in our own back yard. The list of problems seems almost endless: overfishing, fishing using cyanide and dynamite, pollution from sewage and agriculture, invasive species, and sedimentation from poor land use practices. Among them, the most severe is the rising temperature change. This climate change breaks down the symbiotic microalgae relationship that gives many corals their bright colors and, in most species, produce the majority of their food. Subsequently, the corals appear white or bleached. Just one degree is enough to bleach many corals. This alone has led to massive die-offs throughout the oceans of the world.
In the hands of these nineteen artists, the corals take on a whole new meaning as they become transformed on canvas and clay in rich colors, dramatic textures, and abstract forms. As our exhibit travels, we hope these paintings and sculptures will serve to highlight and make a difference in the way people view coral reefs, thereby joining us in our efforts to protect them. Our “Vision of Harmony” emphases the delicate balance of nature, playing such a vital role in all their survival. We, as a society, must do whatever is necessary to preserve our coral reefs for generations to come.
