N guyen the Hung was born in Tuyen Quang province, Vietnam in 1981 and is currently based in Hanoi, Vietnam. He holds a bachelor degree in Fine Arts from the Hanoi Fine Arts University, Vietnam. He has participated in residencies in the United States and has exhibited his work all over Asia and the United States.
His inspiration is drawn entirely from nature which he often refers to when describing his development as a person and an artist. As a medium of choice in this specific selection of artwork that is presented herein, he chooses lacquer on canvas. And in spite of the surrealist influences in his work, he still chooses to classify it as abstract, perhaps for comfort to not delimit his development and the expression of his imagination.
“Have you ever wondered how a tree grows up? They are born from the seeds carried in the air; land in wet soil; sprout and grow by receiving warm sunshine, soil nutrients and water; day after day, month after month, year after year, they grow and grow with deep roots, to become large trunks, big branches filled with layers of leaves, flowers and fruits, ... I paint and develop my paintings over time, my experience and changes on and within myself. I am observing the moving points in my imagination. For me, Art is the medium through which I can present my fantasy world to the world around me.”
