May Yang - Printmaking & Mixed Media
A devoted printmaker, Yang graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art with a focus on graphic design and printmaking. While there, she interned for Dolphin Press and Print, the school’s print shop. Continuing her interest in collaborative printmaking, Yang received her Professional Printer’s Certificate from the Tamarind Institute of Lithography in Albuquerque, NM.

Most Important:
Recently, Yang began investigating her family’s background and her cultural identity as a first generation Asian-American through her artwork. She said, “The versatility of the different printmaking mediums lend themselves well to portraying the dichotomy of the two cultures within which I live. Family photographs are treated with a delicate touch whereas English text & letterforms receive a bold treatment, often using bright, eye catching colors.”
