About the Artist
Chartered Accountant to Collage Artist
Selina Yung (she//her) is a Chinese born, self-taught artist and the founder of Clever Clippings. Selina knew what she loved at a very early age, but in her culture, country and family, she was not free to choose what she loved. Working in the accounting and banking industries, carrying hopes and dreams of her lineage in a foreign country, her heart still held a passion for art. After 10 years, she decided to follow her heart - to a full time career in art.
"If we all deserve a second chance, why shouldn’t these discarded images get a second life? That is how I fell in love with analog collage," she says.
By choosing to work analog, rather than digitally, Selina can only compose with found materials, from newsprint and magazines to flyers and photographs. This constraint drives her to be creative and to find unconventional ways to express ideas. She explains “you can have a clear idea of what you want to create but the nature of the process may lead you down a different path, just like life. The unpredictability of the medium and the sense of discovery draws me in.”
Her work not only explores the relationships between pop culture, nature and inner self, but also encourages viewers to experience collage in a fresh and modern way.
Really happy with my purchase of MJ Black Cat, it's exactly what I expected. Looks amazing right beside Kobe Black Mamba. Certainly recommend getting the pair. Buying from Clever Clippings was great, really incredible service and communication.
"Let Go" is wonderfully poetic. I have always felt that there is such a sense of forlornness and misunderstanding to this villainous character and this artwork captures that for me.
Sailor Moon was my first anime (along with dragon ball) that I grew up watching. It used to air every morning right before I would head out to school. I felt a deep connection to the scouts. They were my childhood idols! needless to say when I saw this beautiful piece, I knew I had to get it. Love the art and emotions this piece evokes in me. The quality is great and shipping speed outstanding. apologies for the poor lighting and bad photo. its 100x better in person.
I am very happy with the quality of this print! It looks amazing on the wall and I love that the print came with a small description. Its so nice to have a bit of insight into the artist's inspiration of the creation.
