HELDA CHIN
FASHION & TEXTILES- GRAYS '18

 

Cleverly examining an aspect of our clothes we usually skim, Helda Chin's work focuses on warning label icons, playing with the idea of breaking the rules. 

"I've taken this restricted theme and rebelled against the rules to create something dangerously fun, whilst briefly touching on the idea of politics".

Refusing to conform to art schools' usual depth in meaning, Helda states, "my designs might not particularly have any meaning or sense to them because they're supposed to be free- that’s what makes them fun to look at".

Whilst we always enjoy a bit of Trump Art (we're looking at you, Matt Bonner), Helda's approach reminds us that it's ok to create art "just because". That being said, the strong lines, choice of colours and iconographic elements in this project are what pulled the collection together and stood out at Gray's Degree Show.
