About Bryan Beyung & James Lee Chiahan
Based out of: Canada
Beyung is a visual artist, born in Montreal to a Chinese-Cambodian family. His work mainly addresses the themes of travel, immigration and its migratory flows. Inspired by his past as a graffiti artist and graphic designer, he develops an intuitive pictorial approach where raw lines, flat colors and realistic shapes are deconstructed to give a second approach to an image, an idea, a memory. His work can be seen in the United States, Canada, Haiti, France, Morocco and Cambodia. James Lee Chiahan 李佳翰 (b. 1990) was born in Tainan, Taiwan and is currently working as a visual artist in Montréal, Canada. Interested in capturing moments representative of everyday life that explore the relationship between memory and experience, closeness and distance, he works to create images that are emotionally affecting but difficult to place into words. He has contributed his artwork to organizations such as The Atlantic, The New York Times, Emergence Magazine, and the Washington Post.
