    Bio:

    Trinh Mai is a California-based visual artist who works in a breath of natural, traditional, and inherited media that holds histories of their own. Her current work confronts the fear, injustice, and devastation that has harrowed our communities and our refugee and immigrant families, then and now. Seeking hope within humanity’s consistent struggle in war and in hardship, Trinh has worked with numerous humanitarian organizations, including the Friends of Huế Foundation Children’s Shelter in Việt Nam and Angkor Hospital for Children in Cambodia, also partnering with the International Rescue Committee to develop creative projects with refugee children. A Walker-Ames Fellow, she continues to speak about her art practice and engage communities in creative storytelling, with the desire to help usher us into communal healing and an enduring hope that will help steady us in a fractured world.
