Lynx Nguyen (M.F.A., painting, 2016) was born in Dong Thap, Vietnam in 1985. Lynx and his family moved to the United States in 1993 to escape persecution from the communist regime. As a young boy growing up in the Communist Country of Vietnam, Lynx experienced fear and hardship, and one way to find mental comfort was to take refuge in the teaching of the Enlightened Saints. His work focuses on mark-making as a form of self-discipline. Lynx lives and works in the Atlanta, GA area.
