Michelle Nguyen

Michelle Nguyen’s dark, whimsical paintings explore the adventures of eccentric, fictionalized bodies and the spaces they occupy. Made primarily in oils, Nguyen's canvases are populated by humorous, caricatured, and even grotesque figures who explore strange social environments that appear to be part dream, part nightmare. Nguyen uses oil pastel, loose gestural markings and ambient colours to illustrate worlds dense with mythology, symbolism, and narrative.

Born in Toronto, Nguyen currently lives and works in Vancouver. She studied Environmental Design and received her undergraduate degree from the University of British Columbia in 2016.
