Portrait Session with Artist-in-Residence Singha Hon Singha Hon is an artist and illustrator from NYC. She draws inspiration from folklore and animal mythology, and looks to explore both the sublime as well as small precious moments of everyday life. She joined The W.O.W. Project in 2019 as their 4th Storefront Artist in Residence and has continued to work with them through the Creatives Rebuild New York program. For this portrait session, she will be creating a custom portrait in conversation with the raffle winner, focusing on the prompt “How have the people/place of Chinatown left an imprint on you?”

Dumpling Top from Artist-in-Residence Joy Mao Joy Mao is a Creatives Rebuild New York textile artist and fashion designer based in Brooklyn.

This year, you can support The W.O.W. Project by entering the raffle to win a special edition of the Dumpling Top in “Sea”—a sumptuous turquoise linen that envelopes you gently like the ocean during a moment of calm.
