We’re thrilled to present to you Saatchi Art artist Xuan Khanh Nguyen. Several of his works are featured in our 2018 Spring Catalog, but there is so much more for you to discover within his portfolio. Read on to learn more about Xuan Khanh and follow the link to browse more of his artworks.

Xuan Khanh Nguyen’s vibrant landscapes are meditations on his surroundings, coupled with what he calls “far-away dreams of a pure universe embedded in everybody’s memory.” He pulls inspiration from his native Vietnam, working with recurring subjects and a minimal color palette to produce a unified view of the world around us. Crowds of schoolgirls dressed in traditional ao dai congregate under lush trees that change color with the passing seasons, evoking nostalgia for times past.
