Joanne Hsieh earned her BA in Studio Art from UC Irvine in 2010. She was raised in a Buddhist family in Taiwan during the late 80s and grew up with imagery of Taoist Buddhist deities, mythical creatures alongside American and Japanese anime characters. This exposure to the local and the imported popular culture at a young age is fundamental to her interest in documenting the fusions of high vs. low, traditional vs. pop, local vs. foreign wherever she goes.
