Happiness Within, 2018
Two solo exhibitions, one Artist in Residence, and my first reality TV competition... 2018 felt pleasantly still and intimate.
Now in my 7th year as a full-time independent artist, I've learned to thoroughly prepare myself for tasks ahead.
In 2018, such opportunities included a brand-cohesive exhibition at Google HQ,
(Martin Hsu 'A Good Life' Google Exhibition, Googleplex, CA)
a deeply personal solo feature Ningyo at Modern Eden Gallery,
(Ningyo by Martin Hsu, Modern Eden Gallery. SF, 2018)
a month-long artist appearance at Disney's WonderGround Gallery,
(Martin Hsu Artist in Residence 2018, WonderGround Gallery, CA)
and an hour-long live competition to create beautiful art on TV.

Now more than ever, I see wonder in nature...
(New Zealand, 2018)
find kinship with animals,
(Kindred Spirits, private commission, 2018)
and feel at peace with being a naturalist and traditionalist
making art in the contemporary world.
So as always, thank you for joining me on this creative and spiritual exploration.
Happy 2018, Hello 2019.
