  • Pachoua’s journey from cultural identity projects to environmental awareness
  • A glimpse into Pachoua’s unique artistic techniques

Find out from Pachoua Yang - a Fine Arts student at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point!

Pachuoa talks about her art project focused on cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, which can be beneficial by producing nitrogen but also toxic if ingested or touched. Her artwork captures the vibrant colors and microscopic details of cyanobacteria.

Puchua aims to educate others through her art and explores different artistic mediums. She shares her background as a Hmong artist and her previous work on cultural identity and refugee stories, showcasing pieces that combine embroidery with painting.
