Matt Huynh is an Emmy Award winning Vietnamese-Australian artist working in New York City. His bold brush and ink paintings are informed by calligraphic Eastern sumi-e ink painting and Western comic books.

His illustrated essays, comics and animations interrogate the repercussions of war, with a focus on diasporic refugee narratives and the experiences of asylum seekers and migrant communities.

Huynh’s VR documentary, 'Reeducated', won a Peabody Award and Emmy Award for Outstanding Interactive Media. His interactive comic 'The Boat' was awarded a World Illustration Award and he was Eisner nominated for 'Cabramatta'.

Huynh's comics, animation and illustrations have been exhibited by the MoMA, The Smithsonian and The Sydney Opera House.

When he is not writing and painting with ink, he is making ink.

As a kid, I loved to draw…
Superheros, dinosaurs, planets, wrestlers and spiders.
I can’t stop listening to…
Renata Zeiguer's Picnic in the Dark.
A movie I never tire of is…
Les Enfants du Paradis.
My project I’m proudest of to-date is…
Cabramatta, an interactive comic about my hometown for The Believer magazine that I built with some friends and studio mates.
I love collaborating with…
Writers, musicians, artists, developers, programmers, animators, directors, and composers.
There’s nothing more satisfying than a project that…
Infectiously inspires the next.
