My Nguyen is a Western Australia based artist who is originally from Vietnam. My graduated in 2018 from Curtin University. She works in both traditional and digital media. Recently, My has taken a love for watercolour for its calming and meditative quality. The scenes in her art are often a combination of reality and fantasy, as if it’s happening in real life but so secretly that we can’t just see it with our eyes open. My has been drawing ever since she was a kid but it wasn’t until she moved to Australia that she discovered the power of art. Art allowed her to break the language barrier and express herself through visuals. The act of creating art encompasses all of who My is. Art defines and refines her. She creates because it feels nice to be able to turn nothingness into something tangible and to make her imagination come alive to herself and someone else. My’s main inspiration is her love for nature. Her mystical art gives a glimpse into the surreal, depicting the smallness of humans in the vastness of nature, and explores the entwining relationship between the two. Her aim is not only to deliver pretty visuals but also to evoke an emotion or a story to the viewers by staying true and genuine to her art.
