Growing up in poverty after the fall of Saigon, Cuong’s greatest pleasure was finding time to draw. His study at the Academy of Art in Saigon was interrupted when the opportunity arose to emigrate to the U.S. in 1991. He earned a degree in illustration from San Jose State University and established a successful career as an icon designer with a prominent Silicon Valley web company.
Cuong soon established a reputation for painting amazingly lifelike portraits on asphalt, and was invited to participate in festivals around the world. More importantly, though, this activity brought him back to painting. Cuong will provide a demonstration in pastel portraits on Saturday, Sepember 26 at our General Meeting. Bring a friend!
