ARTIST BIO

Vy Ngo is a visual artist, who draws most of her influence from personal experiences as a Vietnamese American, studies of various cultures, and reflections on the human condition. Having grown up in a small town in Pennsylvania, she naturally wanted to surround herself with diversity and moved to Philadelphia, New York City, and now Austin, where she currently resides with her husband and two children. 

With a curiosity for understanding the world around her and the desire to serve and connect with others, she studied science and pursued a productive and successful career in medicine. But it was her first passion in the arts which ultimately brought forth her need for visual storytelling and a deeper exploration into her creative self.  Whether it be representational work creating a dialogue between identity, culture, and political issues or abstract and conceptual work based on memories, neuroscience and human emotions, her subject matters are as diverse as her life. However, it is her aesthetic approach of layering vibrant color, movement, and markings, that serves as a common thread to connect and heal the viewer through a higher emotional, spiritual and social consciousness.
