Even with all of the architectural drawings and site visits, once working on site, I’m always faced with the challenge of lining up perspectives. Here’s a moment from my latest install at Rancho Cienega Sports Complex in Crenshaw, Los Angeles where I caught the lines matching up on multiple planes as I carry a ladder and bucket of paint through the construction site. For me, this makes it all worth it.

Here’s an installation where you can drive into it! ‘Gateway’ is a mural commission for @compoundlbc in Long Beach where I was invited to paint the interior of their parking garage. Thanks so much to @laurifirstenberg for believing in my vision. And for @victormsaldana and @jamespaulmanning for the assist in the extreme heat! : @joshuawhitephotography #toferchin #compoundlb #mural #longbeach

On exhibit now at @baikkhneysser in a group exhibition titled Domestic Ritual, co-curated by @joeylico, are a selection of new sculptures I’ve been working on over the past few years. These pieces are part of my investigation on materials like burned wood from the California fires, the discarded building materials found all over Los Angeles from the City’s development boom and the usage of recycled plastic through the molding of concrete. For me, it’s an opportunity to create a dialogue around impermanence, our capacity to be flexible and to shift, while questioning and staying curious about who we are amidst the rapid, frantic growth of the world and the effects that have been imprinted on us. #toferchin #sculpture #baikkhneysser #domesticritual #exhibition #groupexhibition

I was invited by @culture_la and @flylaxairport to install another mural at Los Angeles International Airport, in their new Terminal 1.5 Southwest. It measures 22 ft x 36ft and it will be right at the pick-up/drop-off point for the new Light Rail opening in 2023. Huge shout out to my man @victormsaldana for coming through with the assist, we’ve been working together for over a decade now, love you man! I can’t wait for you all to see this in person once we can pop vaccines like candy and it’s safe to travel again, the terminal officially opens around May ‘21. For now, here’s a photo of ‘Opening’ right as we finished! #toferchin #flylaxairport #dcapublicart #mural #publicinstallation #losangeles

This image captured by my brother @makowka explains it all. The patience, the waiting, the sweat and the work @marianaorkenyi and I have put in these past two years. I cannot wait to share with you all next year my newest permanent sculptural installation off Sunset Blvd where I’m born and raised in the heart of Los Angeles. #toferchin #losangeles #publicart #sculpture

I stand strong with all Black Americans in equal rights and in the fight against racism. As an Asian American, I know I have work to do, to learn, to look into my own forms of racism and privilege. The destruction and violence will not stop as long as the looting of Black bodies continues. Black American’s have been betrayed by our society and by our system for way too long. If we want this to stop, we have to make a stand until the appropriate people are held accountable for and taken out. Black Lives Matter! #blacklivesmatter

Contraction vs expansion, tension vs lightness, struggle vs calm, these are some of the ideas I’ve been investigating and building on these past few years specially with a new body of sculptural works. The times we’re collectively experiencing is further impacting these reflections and how I’m making art. I wanted to share with you a new sculpture made from concrete, wood and acrylic, 2020. #toferchin #sculpture

When I was invited by @friezeartfair and @thestandard last year to install a mural at The Standard in Downtown LA, I knew it was going to be temporary, a 6 month run. There’s always a bunch of emotions going into a project that will eventually be painted over. Not only did my mural stay up for 1 year before it was painted over, the artist to follow my work is the one and only Barbara Kruger. Thank you @jenniboelkens for letting me know, this is such an honor and so fucking awesome! #barbarakruger #toferchin #thestandard #thestandarddtla #friezeartfair #friezela

It’s been an honor working with LAUSD and the students of Maywood High School to create my latest mural titled ‘Pillars’ measuring 31 ft x 35 ft as a permanent installation for the campus! I recently partnered with @lifewtr to raise awareness for the decline in art education programs and bring art to communities in need. The goal of the “LIFEWTR Beautification” program is part of the collective effort to inspire change through art and to bring art education to schools and communities nationwide. The hope is that the murals will be more than just a canvas for beauty: they will be a #CanvasForChange

Really excited to share my new mural ‘Intentions’ at LAX International Airport located in Terminal 7 United departures ticketing area and visible from the arrival level too! The mission of the LAX Art Program is to enhance and humanize the travel experience by providing diverse and memorable art experiences throughout the airport. Presented in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) @culture_la , the LAX Art Program @flylaxairport includes temporary exhibitions, permanent installations, and cultural performances.

Last week I was invited out to the UAE on a cultural delegation with a group of artists, writers and curators. We traveled from Abu Dhabi to Dubai to Sharjah. We visited museums, cultural centers, galleries, art fairs, witnessed some of the most jaw-dropping architecture I’ve ever seen and we ate like royalty every day! I can’t thank @meridianintl and @uaeembassyus enough for hosting and showing us a side of the UAE I have never seen before. I will cherish these memories and relationships made forever, what a way to enter my 40th year here! Photos by me and the talented @thegr8elefnt #uaeusa #meridianontheroad #abudhabi #dubai #sharjah

I don’t even know what to say, I’m beyond honored and grateful to have been awarded the 2019 CCF Grant along side such an inspiring group of artists! The California Community Foundation (CCF) awarded 18 Los Angeles County artists with the prestigious CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists (FVA), totaling $450,000 in unrestricted grants. The CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists provides financial and other support to help Los Angeles-based artists build thriving, sustainable careers and to strengthen L.A.’s vibrant arts scene. This year’s fellows were selected from more than 300 applicants working in a wide range of disciplines. “Artists provide us with a portrait of our past, a reflection of our present and a vision of the future we can create together,” said CCF President & CEO Antonia Hernández. “Their passion, courage and commitment are at the core of what defines us as Angelenos.” Launched with a generous contribution from the J. Paul Getty Trust and sustained by the generosity of donors from across Los Angeles, the Fellowship for the Visual Artists has grown to become one of the largest funders of individual artists in California. Since 1988, it has awarded more than $5.5 million to more than 300 visual artists. Along with financial support, the Fellowship also connects artists with career development support and networking opportunities. #fellowshipforvisualartists #gettyfoundation

Partial studio view of a new series I’m working on entitled ‘Ledges’ inspired by the philosophy of French artist Pierre Soulages “[Black is] both a colour and a non-colour. When light is reflected on black, it transforms and transmutes it. It opens up a mental field all of its own.” #toferchin #toferchinstudio #workinprogress

Visited my man @amirhfallah at his studio yesterday where he surprised me with this massive painting of me and @marianaorkenyi for one of his upcoming exhibitions! For the last two years @amirhfallah’s been making a series of portraits of immigrants and first generation families. The work juxtaposes imagery and objects found in immigrants homes with contemporary American life. The paintings are a meditation on how millions of immigrants have created hybrids of two cultures that are now, more than ever, at odds with one another. So honored and blown away by this masterpiece @amirhfallah! #amirhfallah #amirfallah

One of the best exhibitions I’ve seen this year, ‘Calder: Nonspace’ at @hauserwirth! ‘Calder is willing to believe equally in a nonspace as well as in space. Because of this, his stabiles (and his mobiles as well) are able to fill a given space without occupying it …. He has taken a given space and, by molding beautiful elements of steel around it, caused it to become nonspace.’ -James Jones #alexandercalder #hauserwirth

16 years later! I graduated @otiscollege in 2002 and was invited back last week to install this mural titled ‘Transition’ at the main entrance of the campus. Such a humbling, full circle experience to have been able to do this and I can’t thank @hazel_mandujano enough for coordinating everything! #otiscollegeofartanddesign #otiscollege #otisalumni #toferchin
