These images were directly influenced by apartments in China, especially ones from South East China (places in or near Guangzhou). After visiting the places where my parents originated, I was really inspired by their alleys and buildings. Some of the buildings in China have this sort of theme, where one entire building is coated in a solid color. Chinese people also love to dry things out in the open; laundry, herbs, meat. There's actually some influences from Brooklyn apartments where I live too(it's hard to avoid since I see them everyday). Also, if you notice in the first image, there's a grill on the roof--I was craving for hot dogs and really wanted some barbecued ones so I made one in Maya... I still want a grill and really crave grilled hot dogs!
