"In a 1974 National Geographic article, Lyteck Lynhiavu, a young Hmong Leader, was asked, “why virtually no Hmong become artists?” To which he responded, "The Hmong dream only at night...An artist must dream all day, and we don't have time." Festival organizers say that things have changed since 1974 – today the Hmong community has found time to dream and to realize their dreams as artist in a wide variety of disciplines."


Here is a list of several visual artists in the Hmong community. Not all of them are full-time artists, but some have produced work relating to or inspired by the Hmong culture or Hmong experience.

Visual artists include painters, illustrators, photographers, designers, cartoonists, sculptors, filmmakers, and much more. The names listed below are only a few that I have found. Feel free to comment on those not listed below.
