lilstikyrice

Bio: 
Under the pseudonym ‘lilstickyrice’, Taiwanese born Hsingii Tseng has been arousing audiences with her enticing displays of female sexuality that deal with the deep rooted feelings stemming from her upbringing in a repressive society that tabooed sexual curiosity. Trained in fine arts and graphic design with a natural inclination towards the subversive culture, her art is of a rebellious nature, direct in its raw emotion, and aimed at expressing preconceptions. Hsingii’s pieces are multi-layered and textured environments that utilize a range of mediums to communicate ideas in a visual display that is fueled life experience. Besides making art works, she has been working as a graphic designer and photo retoucher since her second year in college and had the chance to dwell in several fields such as entertainment design, brand development & web design, promotional design, and other projects. Working in L.A.’s entertainment industry, her professional design work is a display of meticulous perfection and superficial glamor. Wanting to be involved in the world of community, she became a part of the underground art and sociopolitical print scenes of L. A.. A pocket ninja at heart, her true passion lies in using art to fight the evil forces in the universe.
