“Master printer Raj Bunnag earned his BFA in printmaking cum laude from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore in 2012.” Presently based in Durham, NC.
“As an artist, I feel I am obligated to use my skills to engage people with my work and drive them to think about the current state of the world. My ongoing series, March of the Druggernaughts: Fantastical Manifestations of the War on Drugs, is a body of work about the failures, fallacies, and players in the war on drugs.”
“A multi-disciplinary sculptor and fabricator. He received a BFA and certification in Public/Architectural Art from Florida State University in 2016. He currently resides in Raleigh, NC, assisting Thomas Sayre in his studio and Clearscapes with their Public Art Projects.”
“Alter-ego Grebniew Kaz (name spelled backwards) draws inspiration from the visual dialect of architecture, cultural patterns, historic symbolism, and motif…Each piece is an expression of universal language to celebrate the harmonious balance of difference.”
