Tran Nguyen has a background in fine art, but now also works in commercial illustration for companies such as Tiger Beer, World Wildlife Fund, Netflix, and Amazon. More, recently she's been focusing on book cover design and venturing into street art and murals.

“I grew up becoming deeply inspired by all the wonderful art seen in the 1990s anime shows and Japanese video games," she says. "Overall, [my work is] based on childhood memories and my family’s history. Crumbs of my family’s loss, joy, and the in-betweens, are subtly left in my artistic narrative."
