Biography

Phung Huynh is Visiting Assistant Professor of Painting at Scripps College. Huynh completed undergraduate coursework at the University of Southern California, received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and earned a Master of Fine Arts from New York University.

Huynh is influenced by 17th century Italian Baroque painters as well as contemporary painters who explore postcolonial, cross-cultural phenomena. Her work is a deliberate exploration of traditional Chinese auspicious imagery, and the ways it is consumed and distorted in American popular culture. Huynh has had solo exhibitions at Sam Lee Gallery in Los Angeles, Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, and the Sweeney Art Gallery at the University of California, Riverside.
