By Bryan Beyung
Year of completion: 2019
Beyung was born in Montreal, among a Chinese-Cambodian refugee family. Trained in graphic design, Beyung is aware of the infinite possibilities digital technologies as to offer, he remains careful concerning their aesthetics, preferring intuitive methods allowing for a more abstract picturing, raw lines and deliberate imperfections – an influence taking roots in its past as a graffiti artist. He is painting everyday life subjects with a pronounced taste for geometric shapes and graphic design composition. Between figurative and abstract art, he creates dynamic compositions where he deconstruct forms to give a second approach to an image, an idea, a memory…
His works can be seen in the United States, Canada, Haiti and Cambodia and are on permanent display at Michel-Ange gallery in Montreal, Canada and Kbach Gallery in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Beyung works and lives in Montreal.
