My Linh Mac is a multi-media artist, visual designer and art educator based in Chicago. Mac is best known for her digital paintings, traditional oil paintings and her series of contemporary ‘galactic /no-brush’ paint- ings- Ranbu. As an accomplished painter, her works portray beauty in humble places with her signature style of deep and vibrant accent colors. While Mac’s paintings have varied genres, from conceptual, abstract, and figurative to contemporary, her digital and visual design works are commercial. Mac discovered nontraditional techniques bring further variety to her paintings through the use of color manipulation and the manipulation of materials and presentation platforms. Her niche is the ability to produce art within one medium that looks as if it were created within a different medium. Each of Mac’s artworks “speak for itself”, her unique approach of combining elements and medium gives her the credibility of an inventive artist and visual designer. What makes her work stand out among young emerging artists is how she incorporates not only technical skills and knowledge from multiple creative fields of design, art, and technologies; but also, her personal experience and cultural exposure from different parts of the world as a traveler.
Mac’s multi-media artworks are represented by Angard Art Hotel, Brauer Museum- Indiana, Queen Victoria Museum and Gallery- in Australia, Museum of Outstanding Design (MOOD) in Italy, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (CICA) Museum- South Korea and in many exhibitions, private collections across the United States and around the world. Through her creative works, she is currently a member of National Oil and Acrylic Painting Society (NOAPS) Oil Painting of America (OAP) and jury committee member of International Biennial of Contemporary Art & Design for Lorenzo Il Magnifico Award & The Leonardo Da Vinci Award in Florence Biennale, Italy; Creative Communication Award (C2A) in Lost Angeles, Davey Award in New York, Creativity International Award, Brightness Illustration Award and more.
