Using deconstructed and reconstructed fabric and paint, Kenny Nguyen explores the concept of cultural identity, integration, and displacement. Born and raised in Vietnam and currently living in the United States, Nguyen sees the alteration of painted silk to a sculptural form as a visual second skin. These cut, torn, beaten, sanded, and layered forms represent the artist’s cultural transformation.

About the Artist

Kenny Nguyen lives and works in Charlotte, NC. Nguyen received a BFA in fashion design from the National University of Art and Architecture Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and a second BFA in painting from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, NC.
