Hmong Artist Interviews

This page is dedicated towards written interviews that I conducted with Hmong artists from around the world. The interviews ask the artists about their upbringings, how they got into art, and other questions relating to their work.

I started these interviews mainly because I wished there was something like this when I was first starting out as an artist. Growing up Hmong and choosing the path of an artist wasn’t easy. I didn’t know many other artists out there who were Hmong or know of any artists who I could connect to at a cultural level. By conducting these interviews, I hope to share the stories of other Hmong artists who may have had similar struggles and upbringings, and sharing their paths to becoming an artist.

Speaking of Hmong artists, if you want to find more, here is a list of Hmong Artists that I have compiled!
