    Julien Nguyen

    Julien Nguyen (b. 1990) was born in a Vietnamese-American artist, and lives and
    works in Los Angeles. As a teenager growing up in Washington D.C. and during the
    dawn of the Internet Age, Nguyen formed the basis of his aesthetic by playing video
    games like Civilization III, Age of Empires and StarCraft, each with their own highly
    stylized depictions of their respective worlds.

    Nguyen’s work was included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial and has been the subject
    of one-person exhibitions at the Swiss Institute in New York, Kunstverein München
    in Munich, and the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati.
