About Kenny Nguyen

Kenny Nguyen is a visual artist from Hanoi, Vietnam.

Born and raise in a juxtaposed country with so many layers of history have navigated Nguyen towards the path of making fantasy illustrations. While living and studying in the States, Nguyen has been strongly captivated by the physicality of printmaking combined with bookbinding. Together, these two techniques have soon become Nguyen’s greatest tools of the trade.

While busy with projects, Kenny is always open to discuss freelance opportunities as well as gallery commissions. He has been assisting Master Printer Rhoda Rosenberg with large intaglio printing process as well as staying under her wings as an apprentice.

Kenny’ works have been collected/represented by The Boston Printmakers, The Boston Public Library Print Department, The Southern Graphics Council International, and Abecedarian Gallery.
