Tony was a really nice guy, he seemed very shy and timid. I loved his positivity and how he answered all the questions with respect. Tony said he gets inspired by everyday life, and just from what he sees. Nguyen is from Gardena, Ca and was born here. He took 2 semesters making all the Armor. He got in to school for painting and drawing and then realized it wasn’t really his thing so he went to illustration then a year later  realized he loved ceramics and wood instead. Whats next for Tony is he wants to go to Ucsd for his MFA.

Tony’s bread and butter is metal, his so talented at it. The specific detail in his work is amazing. Their is so much detail ad some of his metal pieces are so small. Thats what fascinated me the most. Some of the pieces I saw I never thought id see in a college gallery I would’t have even think of making that.
