Paul Bai

Born in Tianjin, north-eastern China, Paul Bai arrived in Australia in 1988 and obtained a Doctor of Philosophy (Visual Art) at Griffith University Queensland College of Art in 2015.

 

Paul works in various media including painting, sculpture, video, collage and photography. Throughout his practice, the artist poses a consistent interest in the notion of space. By adopting the tradition of conceptual art, he re-instigates the topic of ‘content and context’ by displaying the ambiguous nature of spatiality that can be regarded as conceptual, physical, and experiential.

Paul has exhibited with OCAT– OCT Contemporary Art Terminal Shanghai, Guangdong Museum of Art, Singapore Art Museum, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA), University of Queensland Art Museum, Monash University Museum of Art, Queensland Art Gallery| Gallery of Modern Art, Gallery 4A, Institute of Modern Art, Griffith University Art Museum, and Museum of Brisbane.
