I just wanted to take my art posting goofiness down a notch and feature some works by someone who really captures beauty in poetic ways. Tran Nguyen‘s sensitive soul is highlighted with her tender, emotional pieces which utilize subtle hints of patterning to accent plain portraits. Even the titles she names her pieces are fantastic.
Color/pattern me amused, amazed, and ridiculously impressed. It’s simply too good! Too good! Too good!!!!
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
