Hai has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines, the United States, Portugal, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. She received her BFA in Studio Art from Harvard University and is a member of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association. See more of Hai’s work here.

Product of the artist’s preoccupation with time and memory, Andrei Varga’s striking portraits have an eerie sense of familiarity. He uses oil paints to create complex and spontaneous compositions that represent forgotten or distorted memories. Born in Romania and currently residing in Dublin, Ireland, Andrei received his MFA from the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He has participated in group and individual exhibitions in Romania, Italy, Ireland, Austria, Portugal and Hungary. See more of Andrei’s work here.
