Born in Vietnam in 1957, Hùng Việt Nguyễn studied biology at the Science University in Saigon. After relocating to the U.S. in 1982, Nguyễn found work as an illustrator, graphic artist and designer. He developed his artistic skills by carefully studying a variety of traditional Eastern and Western forms, media and techniques. His complex, labor intensive use of oil paint reveals a mastery of texture. While portions of Nguyễn’s work suggest the influence of traditional forms such as woodblock prints, oriental scroll paintings, ceramic art, mosaic, and stained glass, his ultimate expression as an artist asserts a more contemporary sensibility.
Nguyễn’s paintings have been exhibited at Art Fairs including Art Market San Francisco, Art Context New York, Palm Beach Art Miami, Los Angeles Contemporary Art and the Houston Fine Arts Fair.
His honors include the Juror’s Choice Awards, 2013, and the San Diego Art Institute Biennial International Award Exhibition, 2015.

His video presentation will be available on Sept 20.
