About The Artwork

Year: 2020 Style: illustration Description: The artist Sha was on a zigzag street in NYC one day during sunset. People on the street walked fast with their long shadows dragging behind them. That moment felt like the sun was trying to make people stay. People come and go in fast-paced urban life, nothing can really stop that, not even the powerful sun. When you look at the urbanscape of big cities, they can be very impersonal sometimes. Human beings are incomparable in sizes with skyscrapers and endless streets. But cities are such places filled with stories. Love and hate, joy and sorrow, togetherness and parting all seems to be buried under the concrete skin of the city. Sha wants to find a way to perceive how a city says goodbye to a passerby. This piece created a place where women were buildings that provide shelters for people. Need Help? Contact

Sha Li

Sha Li is an award-winning illustrator, artist and architect working and living in NYC. She has a strong interest in narratives, which is where she started her own exploration of visual arts. A lot of her works celebrate femininity and womanhood. Her works capture sections of life and unfold hidden stories that are yet to begin.

Coming from an architecture background, Sha is trained to work with completion and certainty. But she always find beauty in half-told stories, unfinished lyrics, unspoken words, etc. She understands that no single straight line can depict her emotions, convey her feelings on the blueprint. Then she start to draw her own narratives.

Sha Li is obsessed with the ambiguity of visual narratives that raise questions to the audience without leading them to a definite answer. Instead of finding answers, she is more interested in the process of unfolding the questions. Through her work, she sees her hidden self, makes peace with her struggles, and knows who she is.
