  Although Bui’s installations are informed by his engagement with Cubism and Arshille Gorky’s lyrical sense of line, he refuses to be limited by a single idiom or a predictable signature style.

The artist’s understanding of Cubism derives from his thorough grasp of art history as well as being the product of a committed effort to master its painted language.

Having deeply absorbed its tenets both through practice and study, Bui brings into being with extemporaneous freedom the mystifying vision of Modern art’s rambunctious youth.
