Vida was born and raised in San Francisco Chinatown. Having always been surrounded by a wealth of neighborhood murals and histories, she is particularly drawn towards visual storytelling as a form of inter-cultural communication. Her family’s immigration history extends back to the 1800s through multiple generations, one of whom worked on the Transcontinental Railroad. She studied Art History and Sociocultural Anthropology with a focus on public art and identity at the University of Chicago. She uses photography, drawing, 3-D mixed media installation, and video as tools for storytelling ( Vida is fond of hikes in the Presidio, post-colonial literature, the German language, boba tea, Hoisan wah, and petting strangers’ dogs.
