Quynh Vu is a visual artist based in North Carolina, USA. She graduated from Wake Forest University in 2022 with a Bachelor's in Studio Art. Much of her work reflects the continuous process of attempting to understand her identity as a Vietnamese American woman- an identity that invokes strong sentiments towards both Western and Vietnamese culture and history. Working primarily in 2-D, Vu directly faces the lasting impressions of Western influence on modern social dynamics.
