Élan derives from the French word élancer which means to throw forward. Women everywhere nowadays are throwing themselves forward towards their dreams, beliefs, and ambitions. We are here to celebrate the embrace of self and identity women have found in reaching their goals. Gone are the days of insecurity and passivity. Measuring at 18 by 24 and painted in black, red, and pink acrylic and watercolor; Élan welcomes and supports all women in their revelations and endeavors. The series features 3 women who have very different styles and paths to cross, all find themselves enjoying the satisfying and refreshing taste of bubble teas.

Artist: Gary Hou

Curator: WforWee Inc.

Organizer: Bar Pa Tea

As a creative initiative to bridge food and art, Bar Pa Tea collaborated with New York based artist  and  designer,  Gary  Hou  to  produce a collection  celebrating  their  first  winter  in SoHo.  Inspired  by  Bar  Pa  Tea’s  multifaceted flavors,  Hou  found  his  medium  in  silver mirrored  acrylic  as  a  means  to  reflect  the curiosity  of  Bar  Pa Tea's  reimagined  bubble tea  culture. The mirrored pieces are deliberately  interactive,  capturing within the artwork  that  beloved  moment in which a guest can indulge their cozy winter pastime of a good cup of tea.
