About Minh D. Uong

For as long as I can remember, I've been attracted to creating art. Even when I was a young boy, I was drawing super heroes and painting still lifes. I would spend hours getting lost in the process. That love led me to pursue communications design at Pratt Institute.

After graduation, I worked at New York magazine, learning all about producing a glossy magazine, then to The Village Voice as art director. During my tenure at the Voice, I had the pleasure of working with some of the best illustrators in the field. Together we created many memorable covers and award-winning spreads.

Currently, as an art director at The New York Times, I've been crafting diverse artwork for the cover of the Business Day section. I've painted colorful portraits of chief executives — mostly of troubled banks — and developed visuals for business stories when there were no obvious photographs.

Along with my artwork on this site, I also dabble in graphic design, T-shirt design, illustrating children’s books. I have also taught illustration classes at Syracuse University, Pratt and School of Visual Arts.

Please feel free to contact me about commissions and any other creative projects.
