Product Description

Tuan Nguyen Sculpture; Celebration

This gorgeous sculpture entitled “Celebration” is the artists tribute to the balance and beauty of the human form. Sculpted by massively collected and award winning artist Tuan Nguyen, it originally sold for $36,000. Born in Vietnam in 1963 to a family of wealth and privilege, Tuan learned volumes about balance after the fall of Saigon in 1975. Wealth had turned to poverty, privilege to oppression, and happiness to sadness. Tuan began to realize that one couldn’t exist without the other. Thirsting for freedom, he attempted to escape the Communist regime, but he was captured and imprisoned during the attempt. However, Tuan never gave up, and his will was not broken. Drawing on his skills as a sculptor and using only the clay from his cell floor, he sculpted figures resembling his captors. The officers were so impressed with his work they granted him his release.

Tuan succeeded in fleeing Vietnam and made it to the United States safely in 1989 where his reputation as a master sculptor was cemented. Earning numerous awards such as the “Gold Medal Award for Sculpture” from the California Art Club in 2006,  Grand Prize Artist Award California 2002, and the Gloria Medal National Sculpture Society 1994. His work is on display in numerous museums and public spaces such as  Art Museum of the Americas in Washington DC, Pasadena Museum of California Art, Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, MOCA in Paragould, Public sculpture “Vietnam War Memorial” placement in Westminster, U.S., Public sculpture “Rendez-Vous” placement in Laguna Beach.
