“#hellomynameis Mikhaela Cherry Virginia Chandra (@mikhaelacherry). I am a 24-year-old freelance mural artist. I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, and went to college in Shanghai. I used to work a 9-to-5 job as a marketing assistant in Shanghai, and later on as an in-house graphic designer in Jakarta. I remember feeling depressed working in a field where I couldn’t grow. In 2015, I decided to quit my job and used up all my savings to travel through Southeast Asia for two months. I felt so euphoric. During that time, I fell in love with painting, which has become my full-time profession to this day. My art can be described as Zentangle drawings [patterned designs], with a twist of watercolor and doodling. If I didn’t take the bold move to go out of my comfort zone, I wouldn’t be able to create my portfolio and without patience, I wouldn’t be able to create such intricate and detailed artwork.”
