Antonius-Tín Bui


Admiring this series of cut-paper posters confronting silent issues of being a model minority.  They are the creations of Antonius-Tín Bui who proudly identifies as a queer, gender-nonbinary Vietnamese-American artist. He has received fellowships from various art institutes and has exhibited at several venues.  In an interview on the Curator Site he say this about why he makes art:

“I still find myself waking up every morning with more questions and doubts than answers. Art has been a vehicle for me to connect with my multifaceted identities in meaningful ways. It has allowed me to collaborate with community members who challenge me to expand my ways of thinking, seeing, moving, tasting, hearing, etc.” 

“I identify as an artist because the label is constantly in flux, allowing me to define and redefine my role on my own terms. When I say I make art, I mean I am an activator, educator, community builder, maker, performer, connector, lover, etc.”


You can follow the artist on his website and on Behance.
