Le Thanh Tung (aka Crazy Monkey) is a Visual Artist and Creative Director currently working in Ho Chi Minh City. With more than 15 years of experience in the field of Design - Creative, in recent years Tung has been trying to level up his art projects with the application of new technologies. For most projects, Tung uses volumetric display technology to duplicate his perspective into the digital graphics space. Tung's art and technology projects have been exhibited and performed in many countries around the world, such as the London Design Biennale in the UK, the South Wind Rise exhibition in Taiwan, and Disembedding at the HOW Art Museum, China. With extensive experience in real-time computer graphics, Tung is currently digging into other new high-tech trends such as Generative Computer Graphics, NFT and the artistic side of the new Metaverse.

"Crazy Monkey discovered his lifelong fascination with art when he was young. Born to parents who are both Vietnamese governmental office workers and educated at one of the oldest institutions in Hanoi, he quickly found his interests lay outside the remit of a traditional Vietnamese education. “I focused solely on drawing and was quite dismal in the staple of scholarly subjects,” he remembers.  “At 16, I enrolled in a semi-professional school, spending half a day learning the common curriculum and the other studying fine arts.”
