About the Artwork
“Fulfilling my dreams - Completing my destiny. Challenges conquered and complete from Heaven and Earth - the quiet serenity, the rapture, the harmony, the equilibrium, the sweet melody of joy and happiness. Awaiting the ecstasy of love …Can you see it?” - Tuan
About the Artist
Tuan Nguyen’s works exude harmony and peace, though - as a former captive in a Vietnamese concentration camp - this artist has experienced an existence far removed from the serenity brought forth with his artistry. In 1995 he received a fine art degree from the Art Institute of Southern California. He is the recipient of the Gloria Medal from the National Sculpture Society (New York).
“Art is vital for me. It is almost a religion. It means to believe in people, in life, in love. It is a response to what is beautiful and ugly. As an artist I do what I do for no other purpose than to express my feelings.” – Tuan
