Intro
Shuoyuan Bai was born in Wuhan, China. He went to the United States in 2007 to continue his education. After graduating from Pratt Institute with a B.F.A. degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing in 2014, he enrolled in the M.F.A. jewelry program at Savannah College of Art and Design to further his education. The influence of culture is evident in the theme of Bai's work. Inspired by traditional ideologies, as well as modern aesthetics, Bai uses both traditional and alternative materials to emphasize the implications behind the actual objects, as well as visual appeal through fine craftsmanship.
 

Statement
