Michael Ho was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1996. He graduated summa cum laude with a BA in fine arts from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2018.
Shortly after graduating, he moved to Tokyo, Japan in 2018 and began showing work in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Focusing on the visual semantics and quasi didacticism, his paintings and sculptures take from fleeting moments of American pop culture, investigating the more
intricate ability for painting to engage in a contentious, active conversation with the viewer.
