Miss Wax is proud to introduce the first installment to the Miss Wax Artist Series featuring NY artist, Sophia Chang. Sophia Chang a.k.a “ESYMAI” hails from the borough of Queens, New York. An avid and energized spirit, active in the art & design community. She works in all mediums of creative matter, from printmaking, apparel, websites, graphic design, illustration, consulting and more. Sophia has collaborated on projects with PUMA, Urban Outfitters, NBA, & countless other brands & artists. Her work has been featured in publications all over the world including Complex, VIBE, Nike Mag, UNDO Magazine
& Hypebeast.

Miss Wax and Sophis created a limited edition pendant that features a complete depiction of Sophia Chang’s original “Shaolin” praying hands, inspired by an essential theme in Wu-Tang’s lyrics. Shaolin is an ancient Chinese martial art form, and is a coined reference for New York’s Staten Island. The hands’ complex tattoo design are highlighted with an antiqued 14kt gold finish.

The concept behind this project is to combine creative talents from various U.S. cities to develop a jewelry series that illustrates each artist’s work. In doing so, we aspire to bring awareness to the most deserving youth by creating a collection that speaks volume. Miss Wax goal is to inspire the creative youth to dream & create their own future, regardless of any circumstance. They want to encourage young visionaries to pursue success through the arts. A portion of the proceeds will aid inner-city art programs to those cities in which the artists reside.

The limited edition pendant will be available at select retailers in the month of December.
