Brian Hoang Art

I was born in Vietnam a few years after the war ended. Two years later, my parents and I left the country and spent about 6 months in a refugee camp before relocating to Canada. When I was a young kid, my dad would often pose my action figures and draw them for me. Seeing how he was able to take a real-life object and turn it into a drawing was inspiring. Once I discovered comic books in grade 6, art became something I wanted to do for a living when I grew up.

I eventually got into and graduated from the Interpretive Illustration program at Sheridan College in Oakville, ON just 30 minutes outside Toronto. 

After years of working a day job while only doing art on the side, I went full-time into art in 2014 with the help of my wife, an artist herself whom I met in college. While my earlier work was inspired by the pop culture media I consumed, in 2019, I found myself on a journey to reconnect with my roots and it has since become the primary subject matter of my work.
