Hung Viet Nguyen
Artist Hung Viet Nguyen was born in Vietnam in 1957. He studied Biology at Science University in Saigon, Vietnam, and then transitioned to working as an illustrator, graphic artist and designer since his settlement in the U.S. in 1982. He developed his artistry skills independently, studying many traditional Eastern and Western forms, media and techniques. Nguyen’s complex, labor intensive investigations of oil paint reveal a methodical mastery of texture. While portions of Nguyen’s work suggest the influence of many traditional art forms including woodblock prints, oriental scroll paintings, ceramic art, mosaic, and stained glass, his ultimate expressions asserts a contemporary pedigree.
Nguyen’s paintings have been exhibited at galleries, cultural art centers, and museums, juried by museum curators [ Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Laguna Art Museum (LAM), Museum of Contemporary Los Angeles (MOCA), Museum of Latin America Art (MoLAA), Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA), Torrance Art Museum (TAM), UCLA Hammer Museum of Art ].
