Hong Dam Childhood Exhibition

Artist Hong Dam is holding an exhibition at Ahrend - an upmarket furniture showroom in trendy Clerkenwell, depicting her childhood memories.

During the Vietnam war, Hong's family was forced to flee their home. Hong has now been living in the UK for 35 years, during which time she gained a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art Sculpture followed by an MA in 3D Computer Visualisation and Animation before going on to work in the Film and Special Effects industry. 

After having two children herself she wanted to document her experiences and stories through art - like a visual dairy. Hong is now a part of Studio 106 and concentrates on her art, mainly digital art which is being shown at this exhibition.  Her work guarantees to take you on a journey into her childhood memories with thought provoking colours that blend between the child and adult.
The exhibition runs from 22 March to 18 April and is open Mon - Fri, 9am -5.30pm
Ahrend, 17 Charterhouse Buildings, Clerkenwell Road, London EC1M 7AP
