Original Lacquer Painting: "Da Popoki" by Tim Nguyen
Tim Nguyen Lacquer Paintings
Hawaii artist Tim Nguyen creates evocative paintings of islanders in idyllic scenes. Tim uses an ancient Vietnamese lacquer technique derived from the clear sap of six species of trees.
Tim applies natural vegetable dyes to create vivid colors in the clear lacquer sap. Tim coats an artboard with 10 layers of different lacquer colors. Then, he rubs and polishes the surface to get to the color he wants to show. Tim uses eggshells and gold powders for texture and reflective radiance.
