About the Artist

Calvin Ma

"I utilize the action figure form in my sculptural work to explore personal issues and struggles with social anxiety. As an adult, I face difficulties in social environments. Meeting new people, being in the company of strangers, crowds, peers and intermittently among friends and family brings about a heightened nervousness that takes over and impedes my ability to function socially. Even as a child, I was reserved and apprehensive, so I turned to toys to keep me entertained. I believe the tactile activity of playing, coupled with my active imagination helped establish my passion for the action figure early on. There was something captivating about picking up my favorite hero or villain and creating stories and adventures. It felt only natural to tap into this childlike sense of exploration and storytelling through my artwork."    -Calvin Ma
