BIO

Né à Montréal d’une famille de réfugiés sino-cambodgienne, cette double culture l’a amené à créer dans un souci de se construire et de se définir. Diplômé en design graphique, il s’est familiarisé au monde du numérique, conscient des possibilités infinies de ces médiums, il se méfie cependant de leur mécanicité préférant l’intuitivité que lui permet une démarche picturale plus abstraite aux compositions influencées par son passé de graffiteur. Entre art figuratif et art abstrait, il crée des compositions dynamiques où il déconstruit les formes pour donner une seconde approche à une image, une idée, un souvenir…

Parmi ses plus récentes réalisations, il compte une mission artistique à Port-au-Prince en Haiti, la murale May An Old Songs Open To A New World aux portes du Quartier chinois de Montréal et l’oeuvre The Sea Keeper devenue la 1ère murale produite sur un bateau vraquier au Canada. Cette dernière a été créée dans le cadre du 150e du Canada et du 375e de Montréal et a remporté un prix au International Corporate Art Award 2017 en Italie. Il a également participé à plusieurs expositions et festivals dont le festival international Mural et le Cambodia Urban Arts au Cambodge.

Son travail est présenté en permanence à la galerie Michel-Ange de Montréal au Canada et à Kbach Gallery à Phnom Penh au Cambodge. Bryan Beyung vit et travaille à Montréal.

 

“Beyung was born in Montreal, among a Chinese-Cambodian refugee family. Trained in graphic design, Beyung is aware of the infinite possibilities digital technologies as to offer, he remains careful concerning their aesthetics, preferring intuitive methods allowing for a more abstract picturing, raw lines and deliberate imperfections – an influence taking roots in its past as a graffiti artist. Between figurative and abstract art, he creates dynamic compositions where he deconstruct forms to give a second approach to an image, an idea, a memory…

Among his most recent works include an artistic mission in Port-au-Prince in Haiti, the mural May An Old Songs Open To A New World at the gates of Montreal’s Chinatown and the The Sea Keeper as part of Canada’s 150th and Montreal 375th, which became the first mural produced on a bulk carrier in Canada. The piece recently won an award at the International Corporate Art Award 2017 in Italy. Beyung has also participated in several exhibitions and festivals including the international Mural Festival and Cambodia Urban Arts in Cambodia.

His work is on permanent display at Michel-Ange gallery in Montreal, Canada and at Kbach Gallery in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Beyung works and lives in Montreal”.
