  Calvin Ma utilizes the action figure form in his sculptural work to explore personal issues and struggles with social anxiety. As an adult, he faces difficulties in the social environment. Ma says “Meeting new people, being in the company of strangers, crowds, peers and intermittently among friends and family brings about a heightened nervousness that takes over and impedes my ability to function socially.” As a child he was reserved and apprehensive, so he turned to toys to keep himself entertained. He believes the tactile activity of playing with those toys coupled with his active imagination helped establish this passion for the action figure early on. “There was something about picking up your favorite hero or villain and creating stories and adventures that captivated me. It felt only natural to tap into this childlike sense of exploration and storytelling through my artwork” says Ma.
