Calvin Ma utilizes a recurring figure in his sculptural work to explore personal struggles with social anxiety and where we find solace. Ma has shared that he has faced difficulties in the social environment, often feeling heightened nervousness or anxiety in groups. Finding refuge early on in playing with action figures, Ma’s sculptures are imbued with a sense of childlike exploration and storytelling. His newest body of work beautifully depicts the recognizable figure we see throughout his sculptures, this time as birds in a variety of postures. His characteristically stunning highly-detailed work here showcases his skill through the bright feathers and rich surface details of each form

Ma holds an MFA in Sculpture from the Academy of Art University and a BA in Industrial Arts from San Francisco State University. He has shown at galleries and museums across the United States, and internationally at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Berlin and Saatchi Gallery in London. Ma has been the recipient of numerous awards, and his sculptures are part of public and private art collections, as well as the collection of the Crocker Art Museum in San Francisco.
