329 - Thao French - Muralist + Photographer

1h 26m | Feb 14, 2024

Thao Huynh French is an artist, muralist and photographer. Born in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam, she currently lives and works in San Diego, California. She is best known for co-founding Mindful Murals™ with her husband, where together they’ve painted over 300 community murals for schools and public spaces all over California. In addition to painting murals, she develops projects that intersect social justice and also paints commissions and displays artwork in galleries.

Her work explores different varieties of flowers, family history and her Asian American heritage. Her art is a mixture of abstract and figurative concepts that are often broad and contrasting in ways of style and mediums with no limitation of color. Her work continues to evolve, using her training in traditional painting and figurative drawing to experiment with more modern ways to create art styles that are uniquely hers.
