About the Artist

Michelle Im / RATxCHICKS

Michelle Im / RATxCHICKS

Michelle Im is a Korean American artist working in Queens, NY. For Im, craft has the transformative power to shape culture and strengthen human connections. She decorates her ceramics with playful patterns drawing inspiration from animals and nature. Her project ‘RATxCHICKS’, is a play on words and reflects an inner world of fantasy and humor. In her intricate surface decorations, she often pairs motifs that are deliberately absurd or out of the ordinary. She graduated with a degree in biology and art from The State University of New York at Buffalo and her dream is to one day breed rats with birds.
