Michelle Nguyen’s rich, allegorical paintings use human and animal bodies in varying states to explore notions of identity, existence, and historical erasure. Her canvases are populated by elegant, humorous or even grotesque figures, as well as carefully selected vegetation and objects - often iterations of classical motifs - that appear to be part dream, part nightmare. Nguyen uses oil, pastel, and vivid colours to illustrate worlds dense with mythology, symbolism, and narrative. 

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