Pia (psthatsme) is a contemporary American hyperrealist artist based in New York City. Self-taught, she works with both traditional and digital media. Medium aside, her goal has been to create pieces of work indistinguishable photography, while simultaneously hoping to legitimize digital painting and art in the (traditional) art community. 

She speaks English, French, Japanese, Hindi, and Sign Language. When she's not hiding behind her canvases or tablet, she can be found jamming on the piano, singing, dancing, glued to her Nintendo Switch or PC gaming, or posing in front of the camera.
