Project Assistant

Donald Soh grew up in a Korean church outside Baltimore and developed a strong love for theology.  Thus, faith became the thesis of his work.  It's how he creates, why he creates, and what he wants to create. He wants to challenge people to turn their thinking around, find another way to see things.  “Art will not change for the better until we first change the process.  The key to changing the process is to first change the thinking.”
