PADHiA is a Los Angeles-based street artist, writer, and designer. She explores rebellious themes such as freedom from shame, self-love, and hope. In addition to developing her apparel line for launch in Japan 2020 and selling fine art to collectors all over the world, she is the originator of several viral movements including Unfuk Yourself : Be who you were before the stuff that dimmed your fucking shine, and the Love Me Anyways thought initiative. She describes her projects as “thought initiatives” because they are meant to inspire a shift in commonly accepted thought patterns that keep us trapped in gray versions of our lives. She spreads hope and prompts a different way of looking at life’s circumstances– things which on the surface are painful, are actually the things that allow you to become a far greater version of yourself.
