About Rabbit Strawfedora and Pingping:
As a Los Angeles native, Rabbit Strawfedora is a product of the aristocratic and less diplomatic demographic of the culture, where diversity induces inspiration. Having been influenced by both hypocrisy and honesty, Rabbit has channeled a unique method-procedure pertaining to an array of people. He has created works of art ranging from paintings to reliefs, plaster castings to off-the-wall sculptures. Keeping emotion and motives in mind, he exercises our opinions about the way we look at ourselves and others, ultimately attempting to widen our views of progressiveness.

Pingping was born and raised in Beijing. Fascinated by the dramatic styling in manga and comic book illustrations of her childhood, she started drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil. When she moved to Los Angeles at age 16, and as her art progressed, she was moved by the realism and emotional depth of American pin-up stylings. Her paintings capture the female beauty and its soulful, playful essence.

As a couple, Pingping and Rabbit inspire each other not only a creative level, but also in every aspect of their lives. The show, "Quintessence", embodies the pure and concentrated essence of their love for art and the beauty of the human form.
