about the piece
this piece was drawn on a 12 x 16 x 2 inch birch wood tray using acrylic paint. the wave is inspired by hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa. in her early days of studying art, sunny took an affinity to ukiyo-e style art made using woodblock prints. the patterns and metallic gold embellishment were inspired by her recent trip to beijing where she visited the temple of heaven and fell in love with its interior designs. as an asian artist, much of her art is inspired by her heritage and cultural roots. she also wanted to design this tray since she was in need of a dope looking rolling tray. for custom orders for the tray, please visit the midnight sun hand painted tray page.
