Jonathan Huang is an installation artist who creates contemplative spaces, as a form of advocacy for victims of sex trafficking. In 2008 and 2009, with his wife, he helped to open and establish My Refuge House, an aftercare facility in Cebu, Philippines for girls rescued from sex trafficking (myrefugehouse.com). Since then, he has advocated through fundraising, the spoken and written word, and sometimes he speaks through clay, steel, and salt. His goals are to stir the energy of activism, induce empathy, and spark dialogue rather than to shock the viewer with graphic images. He has shown in galleries throughout the Bay Area, and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from San Jose State University in May of 2013.
