The "Cautious Optimism" piece is next up in a series of locally hand crafted products that use our innovative SP-1 sneaker carriers as #MovingPIECES of art.
Through the artist's eyes:
" Cautious Optimism" is a mindset by which I navigate the world.
As a First Generation Filipino American, it is my hope that the culture in this country will correct itself to help elevate underserved communities.
Across the board, the 'Other' fights to be seen, and ONLY WHEN WE ARE SEEN CAN WE BELONG. -Rich Tu
Rich's piece is timeless in that it speaks for the unjust struggles of past and present. The highlight of the work is a cutoff "thumbs-up". It symbolizes that our lens is always optimistic BUT we must always be diligent with our eyes wide open as we navigate the terrain of today's world. Its sits on a backdrop of his unique & vibrant ripped camo pattern.
