BIO


Portfolio – CV

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…
Ses oeuvres peuvent être vus aux États-Unis, au Canada, en Haiti et au Cambodge. Son travail est présenté en permanence à la galerie Michel-Ange de Montréal et à Kbach Gallery à Phnom Penh. 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…

His works can be seen in the United States, Canada, Haiti and Cambodia and are on permanent display at Michel-Ange gallery in Montreal, Canada and Kbach Gallery in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Beyung works and lives in Montreal”.
