Brian Vu is a New York-based artist known for their vibrant portraits which capture the beauty and strength of the queer community. Born and raised in Orange County, California, Vu spent most of their youth lost in their imagination. After exploring many mediums, they were drawn to the camera; photography was a direct way to produce their ideas and visuals. Vu's art fuses the sun-drenched colors of the West Coast with the effervescent personalities of New York City. Over a period of ten years, Vu has collaborated with brands such as Apple, Instagram, Milk Studios, BBC, and Dazed. Their work has been featured in The New Yorker, Time Magazine, Dazed Beauty, i-D, Them, Metal Magazine and Vice.
