Las Vegas-based artist Angela Chan is giving back to the community while empowering Asian women around the world through the Cre8sian Project.

Chan teamed up with New York-based artist Evan Cheng to develop female superhero characters that envelop qualities of a strong, superhero-like woman: determination, concentration, motivation and education.

The project is coming to fruition just in time for Asian Pacific Heritage Month which takes place in May.

Chan decided if these characters were going to be superheroes, she wanted them to be able to make a real difference in the world, and be a support for not only Asians in the arts, but Asian females in particular to have a platform to be showcased for all of the talent and contributions they have accomplished that often go unnoticed.

The Cre8sian Project currently boasts a roster of high-quality apparel, including crop tops, tee shirts, hoodies, key chains, stickers, tank tops and more.

Their online shop can be found on their website at thecre8sianproject.com.

A portion of all the sales will benefit local programs that support Asians in the arts such as the East West Players in LA and Positively Arts in Las Vegas.
