Drawn to Tiffany Chung

Celebrating the renowned artist with a comic about her life and work

The cover of the comic Tiffany Chung, Drawing on History. Illustrated by Rebe Chen.

Internationally acclaimed artist Tiffany Chung was born in Vietnam in 1969, and is known for her multimedia work that explores migration, conflict, and shifting geographies in the wake of political and natural upheavals.

This comic is part of a series Drawn to Art: Tales of Inspiring Women Artists that illuminates the stories of women artists in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Inspired by graphic novels, these short takes on artists’ lives were each drawn by a student-illustrator from the Ringling College of Art and Design.

We invite you to read the comic and share with your friends and young people in your life.
