Nguyễn Mạnh Hùng

biography

Hung was born 1976 and graduated from the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 2002. He belongs to the second generation of avant-garde artists in Hanoi and has been making extensive contribution and impact on both the local and international art scene ever since he emerged in the early 2000s. 


Hung makes art that reflects the comical situations arising from the rapid yet piecemeal processes of domestic urbanisation and modernisation. As a multi-disciplinary artist, he is equally at ease painting as he is creating large-scale installations or exploring performance art. Hung’s particular realist style encompasses a distinctive sense of playfulness and humour that sets him apart from previous generations of artists.


Hung has exhibited in a number of notable regional and international exhibitions, including: ‘The Age After Divinity’- solo exhibition, Manzi Art Space, Hanoi – 2018; ‘Into Thin Air’ – the public art project, Manzi Art Space, Hanoi – 2016; ‘Asia Young 36’- Jeonbuk Museum, Korea – 2016; ‘Where is The Enemy’- solo exhibition, Negative Space Gallery, Ohio, USA- 2015; ‘Mien Meo Mieng/Contemporary Art from Vietnam’ – Umeå University, Sweden – 2015; the ‘7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ - Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art - Brisbane, Australia, ‘One Planet’ - Galerie Quynh, Ho Chi Minh City and Manzi Art Space, Hanoi - 2013, ‘Living Together in Paradise’ - Goethe Institute, Hanoi - 2011,‘Connect: Kunstzene Vietnam’ - ifa Galleries, Berlin and Stuttgart - 2009.
