Artist Spotlight, BUCKO.
Blog post by Robert Parungao
As the Chinatown Remixed Art Festival inches closer and closer, we are excited to showcase some of the upcoming artists who will be participating in our festival. This week, Chris Binkowski, otherwise known by his artist name, Bucko.
Chris has been diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy since he was two, but this has not hampered his creative spirit. Rather he found that limitations promote creativity. Working primarily in acrylic painting, he has participated in local arts and craft fairs and held a successful Kickstarter campaign to support his art.
Alongside his acrylic painting, Chris also performs electro/experimental art, anywhere from busking on the street, to opening shows. Further, he recently received a grant from Just Change to support his not for profit organization, Accessiblity for Humanity creating low-cost wheelchair ramps for small businesses.
At Chinatown Remixed, Chris will be roaming up and down Somerset Street performing his sound art, be sure to catch him on May 17th! Hope to see you there!
