In her latest body of work, Chinese Panamanian artist MaiYap responds to racism against Asian Americans and the attacks many have suffered. Inspired by Chinese landscape art, her beautiful colorful pieces feature highly textured lily pads floating on top of the water in all shapes and sizes, painted in oils and using only palette knives.
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.

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.
