Antonius Bui (1992-) is a Vietnamese American artist who recently graduated with his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Captivated by notions of spirituality and the necessity of human suffering, Antonius primarily plays in the realm of hand-cut paper. He is drawn to the meditative process of working by hand and the paradoxical qualities of paper itself.
At the moment he is diving into the history of Asian American Pacific Islanders and the Vietnam War. Stay tuned for more work revolving around silenced issues of being an AAPI.
Additionally, he dreams of adopting homeless llamas, having lunch with Beyonce, and running his own food truck company one day.
