kennynguyenart Thanks @hiyoanhle for tagging me. Since I haven't done this in awhile, and this is a perfect chance for my followers to know more about my background as an art maker. Here we go - 20 facts about me in English.
P.S: The people that I have tagged, please do this as well. :) ---
1. I am originally from Hanoi, Vietnam and currently a student on visa here in the States for 7 years already.
2. I believe that I am a person of integrity that by telling the truth to my peers, they get a much more insight opinion rather than sugar-coated answers.
3. I love the rain. It reminds me of Vietnam, and many memories that I have had there.
4. I am very motivated when it comes to making art. It is a good trait to have as an artist to renew yourself and push yourself to make work even when you don't feel like it.
5. My family's background is very diverse. Most of my relatives used to live in Kazan, Russia for many years. For that reason, my family is very linguistic, and I am very proud of that.
6. I am an artnerd, and I print like crazy. I usually start many projects at once. Blame it on modern life aka ADD.
7. I can cook pretty well though no one has ever taught me how to. I mostly learned by observation.
8. My grandfather was the one who inspired me the most to become an artist.
9. I love admiring architecture from different cultures such as Asian, Islamic etc. Architecture brings a great deal of influence to my work.
10. I spend a lot of time alone. I think it is a good practice to isolate yourself in order to fully appreciate the so-called independence and really understand your-"self".
11. I aspire to become a printmaking/bookmaking professor as well as achieving the title Master Printer either in Intaglio or Lithography.
12. My favorite artists are Richard Serra, Jasper Johns, and Louis Bourgeois.
13. I love languages and think that all of them are pretty except when people shout at each other.
14. I like to collect dead plants and looking at death. It is really romantic and quite haunting to see the end of something. It is a transition.
15. I love to be by the water and water as an element in general. My name also means water and Neptune :).

  •   kennynguyenart 16. I spend quite a large amount of time reflecting about the past to the present, instead of looking far ahead into the future.
    17. If I could be any shape, I would like to be a square.
    18. I love generating ideas by sketching but occasionally copy verbatim what has already been done in the sketchbook to a surface of a new work. It is too repetitive, and I don't want the same idea to exist twice.
    19. I think art is very underrated and not a lot of people know how to appreciate art. That could be one of the reasons why people often make up stereotypes about artists.
    20. I am who I am, and I surround myself with not just the people who I like but I don't like as well. You can still learn a lot from others, no matter how conceited they are. 2w
