Thai Bui public art on El Camino in Palo Alto

Several times in recent years I have run into the Vietnamese Palo Altan artist Thai Bui. Here is my shadow on part of his installation on El Camino, across from the Cabana Hotel (where the Beatles once stayed, before Thai Bui’s arrival in the U.S.). Thai also is the conservator or preparator for the public art collection at SFO.

Here is a page about him and links to the video from KQED Spark:

Thai Bui public art in Palo Alto

edit to add, July 13, 2011: This is probably too big of a red herring but here is a lady named Becky Bui but not the Rebecca Becky Bui of Palo Alto, the one whose drawings I enjoyed being shown at open studios recently, especially the one about the dream of a snake that would not bite her. Repeat, this is not by our Becky or Rebecca Bui:

edit to add, April 11, 2012: today I met with Thai Bui and Rebecca Bui, the real Rebecca Bui, at their studio to buy a small gift for a friend, a curator. Here are recent photos of the artsy pair:

    Not sure of the connection but I met at Gallery House today Lucy Liew a San Jose based artist who’s work reminds me of Hung Lu (is that spelled right?) who is from Borneo and also drew me a picture of the Chinese character for her, Hung or Lucy Liu
