Matt Huynh

Matt Huynh is a Vietnamese-Australian visual artist and storyteller. His brush and ink paintings are informed by calligraphic Eastern sumi-e ink traditions and popular Western comic books. His illustrated essays, comics, and animations interrogate the vast repercussions of war, with a focus on diasporic refugee narratives and the experiences of asylum seekers and migrant communities. Huynh’s paintings, comics, and murals have been exhibited by the MoMA, the Smithsonian, the Sydney Opera House, Brooklyn Museum, and New York Historical Society. His work has been honored by the Eisners, National Magazine Awards, Webbys, and World Illustration Awards.
