Marina Abramovic Shares Portrait by SVA Student Chemin Hsiao

May 22, 2013

A portrait of Marina Abramovic created by current MFA Illustration as Visual Essay student Chemin Hsiao recently caught the attention of the legendary performance artist—so much so that Abramovic decided to share a photo of herself holding the portrait on social media.

SVA Close Up spotted Hsiao’s portrait of Abramovic while perusing SVA Portfolios for content to share on the College’s main Tumblr page. Once the portrait was posted on Tumblr, it then hit SVA’s Twitter page with a tag to the Abramovic Institute, and the rest is history—just a few hours later the photo surfaced.

“Just saw this Instagram photo with her holding the print!” Hsiao wrote on his blog. “I feel so honored to have her actually seeing it!”
