. The LA-based coalition offers great cultural programming and resources for people of the Korean diaspora and beyond. Currently, they’re selling a limited-edition artwork by the awesome Byron Kim
to keep events free. GYOPO gives the backstory on the artwork:
For 2020 Byron Kim has created “Cosmetic Portraits: Angela Dimayuga, Aruna D'Souza, Danny Park, Lulu Grier-Kim, Mihail Lari, Young Joon Kwak, Shizu Saldamando, Toba Khedoori, Peter Som” (2020). In collaboration with the artist, GYOPO selected nine AAPI participants in the US whose unique skin tones are represented in a grid.
Kim used makeup foundation as his medium, and the work was printed by El Nopal Press in Los Angeles. You can buy the work online
