Chad Baba

Chad Baba is an Edmonton artist and father with a passion for bygone and unique objects. He was born in British Columbia of Japanese-Canadian heritage.

His art practice centers around the re-purposing and re-imagining of old and abandoned materials into new art. Simply put, Chad turns what some may consider junk into new forms of artistic expression. Chad’s sense of history both informs and guides his practice. His approach to the creation of art is very hands-on. Time has its way with everything and Chad’s art in some ways stops or least temporarily halts this erosion. From his sculptures to his lamps, a new life is given to these castaway items.

Playing with light, movement and recycled materials in a manner that captures and compliments the surrounding environment was the inspiration for this installation.
