Illustration - Tran Nguyen
The new work by Tran Nguyen set forth in Thinkspace Gallery in California. This Vietnamese-born artist received a degree in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design, which I dedicated an entry to its fabulous series ” A Place procured From Our Yesteryears “. Nguyen has a deep interest in therapeutic imagery. He is fascinated with creating visuals that can be used as a vehicle of psychotherapeutic support, dreamy surreal exploration of the mind.
Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.

Here’s my most recent piece in Scientific American for the article "The Hidden Dangers of Going Under" about possible lingering side-effects of anaesthesia. This one went through a few different iterations before we settled on the red one but I thought I’d post a few of the others to show some of the variations. Thanks to AD Jason Arias!
