Calvin Ma: "Homebodies: In My Shell"
June 1 - June 29, 2014

Calvin Ma

Calvin Ma is an emerging artist who has already garnered an exceptional following. As a child, social anxiety led to Ma spending hours playing with toys—particularly action figures— to alleviate his nervousness. These early experiences with play continue to inspire his highly imaginative and technically impressive ceramic figurative sculptures.
