Thai Bui: Visual Arts

In this Spark video produced by KQED, visit with Vietnamese born Thai Bui as he creates works that reflect the pressures of working as an artist in a foreign culture. Bui makes haunting works of art that speak to a sense of displacement and longing that has characterized the artist's own turbulent life. Bui's extraordinary objects combine references to his experiences in both the United States and Vietnam, simultaneously communicating a witty humor and penetrating sense of loss.
