Fidalis Buehler received his MFA from Brigham Young University where he currently works as a professor of Visual Arts in the College of Fine Arts and Communications at BYU. He is heavily influenced by both his childhood living in the South Pacific and his Polynesian heritage. All of Buehler’s art is connected in some way to his memories, especially of his childhood.
