Artist Spotlight: Landon Nguyen

18-year-old Saigon native, Landon Nguyen is an aspiring artist living in California. Though he has been a creative-type all his life, it wasn’t till he moved to the US that he realized his artistic potential. Nguyen has ambitions to one day become a creative director of an international cultural magazine that, “engages in world affairs and bridges the gaps of global diversity” to inspire creativity and show the importance of art in daily life in Vietnam.

Landon was kind enough to send over some of his recent artwork which can be viewed in the gallery below. 

You can view more of his work on his Facebook page.

If you are a local artist and want Saigoneer to feature your work, email contribute@saigoneer.com.
