Meet Etsy Artist: Nguyen Van Gio courtessy of his niece Alicia

The other day I stumbled across some amazingly heartfelt renditions and portraits of real life in Vietnam. Each piece is not just a portrait or still life, but a window to another world, another time. "My uncle is the real artist," Alicia says of the Etsy shop she created to showcase her uncle's work. "I am just posting his art on Etsy because I admire his art." Nguyen Van Gio lives in Vietnam and often creates his beautiful works on rice paper. He graduated from the Ecole National Superior des Beaux Arts (Superior National School of Fine Arts) in 1968 and his work can be seen in many galleries in homeland as well as the Etsy shop his niece created for him. Please check out his work:
