Matt Huynh is a Sydney-born, New York–based visual artist and storyteller. His brush-and-ink paintings are informed by Eastern sumi-e ink calligraphy and Western comic books. Huynh’s work combines sumi-e painting traditions with found perishable objects repurposed for unpredictable mark-making. His illustrated essays, comics, and animations interrogate war with a particular focus on amplifying diasporic voices, telling refugee narratives, and recounting the experiences of asylum seekers and migrant communities. Huynh’s illustrations, comics, and murals have been exhibited at MoMA, the Smithsonian Institution, the Sydney Opera House, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the New-York Historical Society.
