Georgia-based Vietnamese artist/illustrator Tran Nguyen (pronounced “Tron”) takes both a cerebral and emotional approach to her work. With names like “Bedridden Mementos” and “Sleeping With Nostalgia,” they are not just oddly pretty pictures in acrylic and color pencil, but have a dream-like quality that suggests a much deeper impetus. Nguyen herself explains that she is “fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a psycho-therapeutic support vehicle, exploring the mind’s dreamscape.” We love the concept, and Nguyen’s illustration skills are terrific.
