This Thursday, February 11th, Asia Eng will be at Syrup Desserts- 611 S. Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014. 7-10pm.
At the age of five, Asia Eng was diagnosed with a hearing impairment and speech impediment that made it hard for her to communicate. As a result, Asia relied on drawing and writing as a form of communication and self-expression, being that she was also a terribly, shy child. Inspired by her artistic, older sister, and encouraged by her parents, Asia pursued art as a career path. By the time she was nineteen, Asia moved from her home in Oakland to Los Angeles in order to attend the Otis College of Art and Design. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, concentrating on Illustration and Minoring in Creative Writing. It has been two years since she graduated college and she has had such clientele as Disney Children’s Place, Disney Imagineering, Harley Davidson, Warner Brothers, NZXT, Jones Edition, Jakk’s Pacific, Thunder Lizard Studios, and The 3rd Law. At this moment, Asia is also focusing gallery work – her first headliner show shared the spotlight with Mia Araujo and she has had two solo shows in the past year. In addition to her freelance and fine art, Asia works as a part-time teacher at a portfolio school, Vision 21. Asia teaches Foundation Art, Conceptual Illustration, and painting. Teaching has shaped Asia’s character, as some students see her as a role model, she is forced to become a better person because of it.
