Artist Statement

LYNX was born in Vietnam in 1985, he and his family moved to Atlanta in 1993 on a special government program to search for a better opportunity. The first 15 years in the United States was very difficult for LYNX and his family, mainly, due to language barrier and discrimination. However, because of the trials and challenges in life, LYNX was determined to learn and channeled his negatives experiences into his artwork to inspire message of peace, discipline, and kindness. LYNX graduated from Georgia State University in 2011 with a BFA in Studio Art. Four years later, LYNX earned his Master degree in Fine Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, which he focuses most of his effort on drawing, especially marks making, as a tool for self-discipline.
