Que Viet Nguyen graduated from Marie Curie high school in Vietnam and got accepted to Hoa Sen University Vietnam for Fashion Design. He quickly realized that his real passion in arts lay upon the area of Illustration and Graphic Design. Drawing and sketching are Que’s daily routine activities, because it is not only help develop his skills, but also it is a very fun thing to do. He always wants to work with arts and expands his artistic abilities, so he decided to come to U.S.A to pursuit his higher education. Coming to an other country was the hardest thing he’s ever done, not only there was a language barrier, but also the culture shocks and the styles of making arts are very different. What he was taught back home are completely different from the art themes of America, this really did excite him and encouraged him to learn more. Attended Bunker Hill Community College, Que chose his associate in Fine Arts, learned to work with many different media, and got to acquaint more with the American cultural and its art themes. In 2014, he graduated with high honor and received Academic Excellence Award in Fine Arts and Departmental Award in Fine Arts from Bunker Hill Community College. His time in Bunker Hill Community College taught him to appreciate arts and vanished all his doubt about the career path he has chosen. He quickly grew confident to experiment and appreciate the freedom of American’s arts, yet at the same, keeping the beautiful and precious of his Viet’s cultural influences. He attends to Lesley University College of Art and Design since 2014 as a transfer student, and immediately he’s pushed to experiment with arts, works out of his comfort zones and above all learns to loosen up. He has learned a lot from the professors and his peers and is inspired to keep creating art with his skills and constantly pushing himself to experiment with his works.
