Kue King is a Filipino American sculptor. Influenced by the work of Japanese American artist Ruth Asawa, he has developed his own processes and techniques of wire sculpting, both continuing and personalizing the tradition.
Kue King was born Ronald Sunga Reyes on January 17, 1981 in the City of Olongapo in the province of Zambales, Philippines. Youngest of six from a first generation Asian American family, Reyes lived in Olongapo until age seven, when his parents moved to Jacksonville, Florida where he spent the next seventeen years of his life. Although a photography major at the Douglas Anderson School of Arts, it was here that he started pursuing his artistic interests, whilst frequently travelling and furnishing an image of a lebensknstler. At the age of 24, he moved from Florida to Hawaii, where he received awards for three consecutive years by the East Hawaii Cultural Center. At agehe moved to San Francisco he has been travelling ever since.
