Biographical Information
Morris Nguyen ~ [21st century] Vietnamese/Canadian
Morris Nguyen (he/they) is a Vietnamese-born multidisciplinary artist currently based in Edmonton, Canada. Their work, often described as "organized chaos", is deeply informed by the human senses and the duality of being simultaneously observant and in the moment. Soul-level intimacy, social justice, casual yet fleeting moments, deep exploration of the psyche, feelings of uninhibited ecstasy and profound sadness, and scent-infused memories are among the inspirations and themes in Morris’ work.
With photography and music as their mediums of choice, Morris strives to create art that goes beyond aesthetic appeals. The tendency to subtly incorporate acts of equity activism in their work comes from both a visceral understanding of the truths of those close to their heart and their own lived experience.
