New Artist Watch Feature at Escape Into Life

Duy Huynh, A Mindful Garden, 2016
Acrylic on Wood Panel
30" x 30"


I am so pleased today to present Duy Huynh in my Artist Watch column at Escape Into Life. Duy's work first appeared at EIL in 2010. 

Born in Vietnam and currently a resident of North Carolina, Duy took to art as a way to cope with the difficulties of being a refugee and adapting to his new surroundings in the United States and his new language, English. Once Duy discovered how he could use his art to communicate and, as he says, "make a connection", art became his passion and life's work.

Today's Artist Watch column features nine images of Duy's poetic and contemplative paintings, five of which he painted this year; his Artist Statement, and a brief biography. Just click on the Artist Watch link to see why Duy has become so beloved an artist.
