Statement

Hung Viet Nguyen

Artist Hung Viet Nguyen was born in Saigon, Vietnam in 1957. He escaped by boat to Philippines, and settled in US in 1982. Nguyen's paintings were selected to display in juried art exhibitions at galleries, art centers, and museums, spanning from California to New York

Statement:

"The end result of a painting is a pleasant reward, but it is not as important as what I experienced during the creation process. I have struggled with conflicting emotions, with falsity and truth, hope and despair, joy and sadness, comfort and pain, loss and revelation...The journey of solitude to the unknown to explore new spaces, forms, colors, and my true self".

Education and Experiences:

Some art courses, then self-taught Fine Art
Illustrator for various publications in California (since 1982)
Major in Biology, Science University in Saigon Vietnam (1975-1980)
