Oanh Phi Phi

Born in Houston in 1979, Phi Phi Oanh received her BFA at Parsons School of Design (2002) and a Masters in Art and Investigation at the University of Madrid Complutense (2012).  In 2004, she received a Fulbright Grant to research lacquer painting in Hanoi. Since then, Vietnamese lacquer has become central to her work, which focuses on its potential as a painting medium to convey memory or reflection, examine current theories of the image and expand into more experimental methods and scale. Recent exhibitions include: Trees of Life: Knowledge in Material, NTU Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore, 2018; Radiant Material, Pro Se, National Gallery Singapore, 2017; The Foliage, Vincom Centre for Contemporary Art, Hanoi, 2017; Undefined Boundaries, Heritage Space, Hanoi, 2017. Oanh Phi Phi currently lives and works in Danang.
