Rizzhel Javier is a San Diego based artist. Her work explores the intersection of memory, culture and human connection. Rizzhel uses art to dissect her identity through the research and creation of autobiographical projects. Through sharing her story, she hopes to encourage viewers to recall and examine their own memories and personal experiences to  learn about the impact on their identity and perception of self.
