This series is based on Vietnamese folklore. I represented demons or spirits from urban legends. I wanted to integrate a part of me in these works by demonstrating a Vietnamese subject, but perceived by eyes that grew up in Montreal. Being a second generation immigrant, my identity is neither purely Montrealer nor purely Vietnamese, but a mixture of both. These illustrations hopefully offer a visual representation of this concept. I hope to give a new perspective on old myths.
