Chinatown Comics - Matt Huynh 4A
Developed in Sydney's Chinatown, Chinatown is a collection of comics that tells the stories of its locals: Jun Woo Do, Anna Zhu, Bridget Poon, Daryl Prondoso, Teik Chew and members of the Jin Wu Koon Martial Arts Academy! This collection of short comics illustrated by Matt Huynh takes us on an emotional, historical, social and psychological trip through this historic district.
These stories spotlight the seldom-exposed side of the neighbourhood, which is experienced by those who live and work in the area, hidden to visitors behind tourist attractions. These stories encompass a wide breadth of emotions, tones and weight – from anecdotes of the everyday and slice of life observations to the significant, life changing, whimsical, frustrating, and poignant.
Matt Huynh is best known for his inky and energetic brushwork and his passion for exploring uncharted territory. In this collaborative project, Huynh sought to create an engaging and visual expression of personal memories of everyday experience that emerged out of Chinatowns’ cracks and corners.
