Victoria kab vang
graphic designer + illustrator
Hmotifs are inspired by my heritage, the Hmong culture. These motifs are made up of familiar elements from the elephant foot to the tiger face. These new designs tell new stories and I hope to create more to share with all of you.
They were originally created in the form of gold foiled stickers and very limited edition of temporary tattoos. I hope to continue and have them continue living as stickers and eventually printed on fabrics in the future.
If you are interested in purchasing a random set of stickers, please message me!
Zoo Nkauj ( pronounced zong gao ) means "beautiful" in Hmong. In this piece, I use various pieces from female traditional clothings from my Hmong culture.
I wanted this piece to say that no matter what we wear, we are all the same and we are all beautiful.
Another love story
An average person spends about a third of their life asleep but the dreams made in sleep is countless.
What happens to you when you fall asleep?
When I start to fall asleep at night, the first thing to go is the light and then slowly the images and stories come flooding in. In my sleep, I always feel like I am floating or walking on air and mindlessly grasping to piece everything together. "Dreaming" is a visualization of that place where the end of the rainbow isn't all neat and tidy, it is all around me waiting to be soaked in.
By using a familiar core, I build out from there.
Hello, my name is Victoria and I am a Graphic Designer.
A proud Hmong American woman who grew up doodling on the corners of all my homework. Photoshop was my first love from the Adobe products at the age of 11 thanks to my brother. I have learned Illustrator and InDesign along the way while HTML/CSS coding on the side. I enjoy sharing my art in the form of artistic trading cards and because of that, have a bit of my work all over the world.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth as of Spring 2017 and want to continue learning and work with other artists.
Currently lending a hand as a graphic designer for CAIM MAGAZINE, a new magazine made by and for artists of color.
