Thursday 10 February from 1pm to 2pm

To commemorate 2022 Year of the Tiger, the City has invited artists to create ornate installations and banner activations as part of Sydney Lunar Festival 2022 throughout various locations in Sydney CBD. 

Nani Puspasari offers some insights into ‘Year of the Tiger: The Guardian’, which references kitsch prosperity poster art of the 70s and 80s for health, fortune and good luck for the new year. Andrew Yee will talk to us about ‘Then and Now’, a visual tribute to Sydney’s iconic Asian businesses, many of whom have greatly suffered the effects of the Covid-19 shutdowns. 

Bios

Born in Year of the Tiger (1986), Nani Puspasari grew up in Indonesia, the largest Muslim-majority country and raised in a Chinese and Javanese multicultural household. Puspasari immigrated to Australia in 2008 and studied design for years, then graduated from RMIT (Master of Fine Art) in 2010. 

Andrew Yee (b. 1989, Sydney) is multi-disciplinary artist working across illustration, video, installation and podcasting. Yee’s formative years spent in Sydney’s East Ryde district created a disconnect with his surroundings, searching for his identity through a consumption of 2000s manga, pro-wrestling, the spectacle of K-pop and the emotional draw of music.
