I had the pleasure of seeing Tran Nguyen's opening at Thinkspace Gallery a bit back and was completely blown away. Tran's work is a gorgeous combination of figurative and surreal elements that are carefully rendered with brush and color pencil, and the results are just staggering. To say that I was "very inspired" while viewing the show would be a massive understatement, Tran's dedication and commitment to her craft is undeniable, and so easy to see with this body of work. But, even more impressive than the work was how humble and down to earth the person creating it is. With as much talent as she has, one might assume she would have some kind "better than thou" complex or an elephant sized ego, but nothing could be further from the truth. If you have the chance I highly recommend seeing the show in person before it closes, you wont be disappointed!
