“For Artopia competitor Phillip Hua, a digital media instructor at the Academy of Art,
his piece, “Re: action,” is a mixed-media work using everyday objects such as newspapers (The Wall Street Journal), plastic and aluminum. His creation tells the story of the environment and its relationship to the economy, and how everything is related and degrades over time. The quality of the other finalists’ art “is great here, I do feel a little intimidated but it’s been fun.””


“Hua said he was drawn to using print products because of its color, design and how it holds information, which adds another metaphorical layer to his artwork. He said the seductive quality of holding a newspaper appealed to him even though he consumes most of his news online.”
