Art by Tu Huynh (Click title)
Tu Huynh, painter. The son of an officer in the Southern military force, he was born in 1970 in Vietnam. His father who participated in the 1966 Central Vietnam uprising died in 1972 when he was two years old. In 1975, one day before the fall of Saigon on April 30 ending the war of attrition and the corruptible, inefficient systems of military government his father protested, he left a collapsed South Vietnam. A Chinook piloted by his uncle picked up him and his family from the centre of the capital at 4:AM for nowhere but the ocean with no certainty of a safe destination. But ships seemed to be waiting. Afterwards, he came to the US, where he settled. Tu Huynh wrote poems and painted in his early age. Graduated from University of Florida in Fine Art with Honours in 1995 he painted regularly ever since. He first exhibited in Washington DC in 1999.
