Tin Nguyen (b. 1989, Vietnam)

I’m an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. 


Tin Nguyen

My work currently concentrates on observational paintings of autobiographical, oftentimes, quotidian and naive moments, touching on themes such as queer and Asian identity, intuition, and the reconciliation of the self<>subconscious<>nature. I have been thinking about how painting and drawing have functioned as a meeting space between my external and internal landscapes.

I’m often drawn to subtleties of light and textures, contours and colors while constantly exploring different modes for healing, for self-inquiry, and for meditation. I work with spontaneous lines and brushstrokes, staying within an accepted comfort that my energy and moods do fluctuate daily, weekly, and seasonally. I hope to envelop this acceptance into an evocation / a gentle reminder of innocence, play, and tactility through my paintings.
