Student Artist Topher Maka: His Journey to Art and Self

Thursday, November 10, 2016
ASIAN JOURNAL -- The task of art is to create something out of nothing, or in most cases, create sense out of chaos. But how does it happen? Where does it come from? For Filipino-American artist Topher Maka, the journey to make art — among other things — is what made him. Maka is a San Francisco-based artist who practices fine art with curation, painting, illustration, printmaking, art installations, art preparation and handling. He also works digitally with graphic design and print-based media. Currently, he also acts as the managing director of the non-profit and fully student-run Associated Students’ Art Gallery at San Francisco State University.
