I’m Bao-Khang Luu. I’m a sculptor and painter. I work with different materials, but there are a couple of threads that run through my art. The first idea is that everything has inherent beauty and intrinsic value. I ask the viewer to reconsider things we might not usually give a second thought to. The second idea is location. Each series is linked to a specific place.
My practice has spanned the realms of dance, installation, interactive technology, and traditional media. I have garnered national television appearances (The Nate Berkus Show, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Flea Market Flip) and media buzz (Surface, Inhabitat, Apartment Therapy) for my approach to upcycling in home decor.
I hold a BFA in Design (UT Austin), MFA in Design and Technology (Parsons NY), and certification in Sustainable Entrepreneurship (FIT NY).
I currently live and work in San Francisco after relocating from the Swiss Alps.
