Nhatrang Phan

Artist bio

Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, the artist is self taught and works mainly with acrylic paint. As a young child she loved spending her time drawing or coloring. In High school she was accepted to the Ryman scholarship art program. Soon after entering college Art was pushed to the side and forgotten. After many years break from art the artist ended up moving to New York City and attended The Art Students League of New York for several months. A forgotten part of her was awoken as she began draw and paint. She eventually moved back to California and continued creating work by herself. She paints from intuition that is inspired by her physical surroundings, the music she listens to, and the emotions that are evoked. The paintings are spontaneous, subconscious, and spiritual. The artist tries not to control the outcome, leaving the result authentic to where she is at. During her journey she was saved and came to know Christ. Naturally, her artwork became her testimony. Her artwork before Christ was filled with lust, cigarettes, and darkness. After she got saved her paintings became more peaceful, filled with light and the Holy Spirit. It has been an interesting journey that has been documented through her artwork. She hopes that her artwork can inspire believers and possibly spark interest in non believers.

Artist Statement

The artist creating this artwork by using acrylic paint on canvas. The painting depicts the spiritual battle that she faced as she stood in the dark surrounded by darkness as she cried out to God. God answered with one sentence “There is good and evil in this world and you need to come back to me”. From that moment on she knew God was real and never turned back.

How it fits into contest

This painting depicts the darkness that we are surrounded by, but when we submit to God, we are shown the light. We are saved by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. As we put on the armor of God we can fight through the spiritual battles that are unseen in this world. God is with us and waiting for us to submit to him
