Hawai’i-based artist Juvana Soliven (MFA Metalsmithing 2006) was recently featured in a look at Filipino American artists and how they find connections with their history and identity. Soliven’s work subverts and utilizes object languages to speak to issues regarding intimacy, labor, and women’s positionality within the patriarchal system.

Soliven is currently an adjunct professor at the Chaminade University of Honolulu and a lecturer at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.
