Project Woven Throw / Chinatown Grocery Haul by Rena Li
Project Woven is an ongoing concept in collaboration with artists near + far that explores the connectedness between individuals, communities, and all that surrounds us.
Fiber of My Being! is the first series that features work by AAPI artists and seeks to examine the intertwining threads of our heritage, personal histories, and shared experiences to raise funds for organizations that are taking action against the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes and violence.
Proceeds from Fiber of My Being! will be donated to the commUNITY Action Fund founded by Hate Is A Virus. This initiative is raising $1M for boots-on-the-ground community organizations including mental health services, safety and care for our elderly, and efforts that build solidarity within and between BIPOC communities.
About the Artist
Rena Li is a creative based in SF. During business hours, she is a freelance designer. Off the clock, she illustrates, plays video games, and gets into miscellaneous creative mischief. Rena was raised between Houston and Shanghai, and has spent her early 20s floating across California, Texas, and NY — she is immensely grateful for the places that life has taken her. While navigating through this transience, Chinatowns have been important places for her to reflect on her identity and find groundedness. That's why outside of work, you'll find her wandering through the aisles of immigrant-owned grocery stores to admire their produce selection to feel at home.
