Aiâ€™s artwork is bold, sharp, reflective and contains empowering subjects and meaningful color combinations. The artistâ€™s inspiration comes from various aspects of her life, urban and desert rural communities throughout California and Southwest Arizona. Ai also uses mystic, celestial and ancestral references from indigenous America and Africa. What also inspires her work is her love of music including Prince, Hendrix and lyrical hip hop music. She believes symbolization and color therapy is essential to healing and overall wellness. So she creates art pieces that incorporate these themes.
