BIO


Portfolio – CV

Beyung est né à Montréal en 1985 d’une famille de réfugiés sino-cambodgienne. Cette triple culture l’a amené à créer dans un souci 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 lignes brutes et aux imperfections délibérées.
Influencé par son passé de graffiteur, il peint des sujets du quotidien avec un goût prononcé pour les formes géométriques et les compositions inspirées du graphisme. Entre art figuratif et art abstrait, il déconstruit les formes pour donner une seconde approche à une image, une idée, un souvenir. Son travail peut être vu aux États-Unis, au Canada, à Haiti, en Espagne et au Cambodge.

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, Spain and Cambodia.
