Anh Bui is a painter and installation artist. He was born in Hanoi, Vietnam, and has been living between there and San Francisco, USA, since he was 10. Anh uses art to confront his trans-cultural experiences, and place these experiences within a wider sociopolitical and cultural context. The resulting bodies of work connect and subvert domineering narratives concerning nationhood, the immigrant experience, and masculinity.
Anh received his Master’s Degree in Museum Studies at San Francisco State University (SFSU) in Fall 2017, with a focus on Curation and Education. His final thesis is titled “Arts and Society: How Vietnamese Independent Arts Organizations Serve and Impact Communities.”
Anh received his B.A in Studio Arts at SFSU with a dual emphasis on Sculpture and Painting in 2014. He has exhibited with the de Young Museum, Intersection for the Arts, Kearny Street Workshop, 111 Minna Gallery, and Incline Gallery.
