Female Giants Accompany Their Fierce Companions

Through a Lone Winding Road new


Through a Lone Winding Road new

Multi-award-winning illustrator and artist Tran Nguyen creates ethereal paintings and colored pencil drawings, looking as if they come straight out of a fairytale. She explores her interest in therapeutic imagery, and she presents intriguing, dream-like narratives, drawing the viewer in and inviting them to explore their imagination.

Originally from Vietnam, and raised in the US, Nguyen claims her love of art came from an early interest in anime, American cartoon shows, and video games from the 90’s. One of her most celebrated series, The Flooded Hour, depicts larger-than-life female characters that roam around misty, secluded landscapes, often accompanied by giant animal friends. “I enjoy creating an atmosphere that appears ordinary then juxtaposing it with elements that break this to add a subtle hint of surrealism,” explains Nguyen.

The artist’s mystical subjects are often seen wading through lakes, crouching between houses, and stepping over bridges, careful not to disturb the tiny boats below. “I wanted to focus on the wandering through old memories represented by empty neighborhoods.” Some of Nguyen’s most recent work features portraits of women wearing oriental-patterned body paint and floral tattoos, or overlaid with gold leaf, thick drips of paint, and illustrative lines. Taking further inspiration from haute couture and fashion photography, her female subjects are sometimes depicted in dramatic gowns.
