Anela Ming-Yue Oh is a multidisciplinary artist in love with curry and the ocean. She holds a BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. Her art practice is deeply grounded in a sense of community and sharing her skills with others through playful experimentation and collaboration. She uses materials that have a life of their own such as clay, paper, and fiber to feed her studio practice and create environments full of color and texture. As a mixed race artist of Malaysian Chinese descent, she utilizes imagery, colors, textures, and smells from her cultural heritage to pay homage to the work of her ancestors as she builds new worlds and futures. Her work aims to inspire a sense of hope and proposes visions of a future that includes marginalized voices by choosing to take a joyful and playful approach while discussing immigrant histories. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at Sonoma Ceramics, and a Teaching Artist-in-Residence at the Oxbow School. Most recently she was the West Bay View Fellow at Dieu Donné Papermill. She has just started as a 2022-2023 resident at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts where she will be combining her love of materials in new and exciting ways.
