Bunnag’s artistic practice examines systematic racism inherent to the foundations of the US, its institutions, and its domestic/global policies, through themes in the lineage of print. His current work focuses on systemic violence that is often carried out by white communities throughout this nation’s history. The dangers of collective white rage and the purge that follows have continuously shaped this nation. In his more personal work, Bunnag is reexamining his own experiences about the ideas and baggage that come with self-identity as the son of immigrants and what it means to be a non-white body existing in white spaces. He has shown work nationally and internationally and has received numerous awards for his relief printed work.
