Poetic Acrylic Paintings by Duy Huynh

Vietnamese born artist Duy Huynh creates poetic acrylic paintings inspired by stories drawn from ancient folklore, comic books, film, and music. He moved to the United States in the early 80s and took refuge in art as he struggled with language barriers and his new environment. Themes of cultural and geographical displacement frequently appear in Huynh’s. His attempts to connect fluid patterns in nature with that of human designs creates a juxtaposition of movement and stillness. You can see more of his original works in his archives.
