Winnie Truong

Winnie Truong is a Canadian artist whose infinitely detailed drawings are absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing. she has just launched her latest series A Slow Immersion, which is currently showing at the ESP Gallery in Toronto.

The latest drawing series by Winnie Truong continues to explore the artist’s ongoing relationship with hair beyond beauty and accoutrement and into a direction of a object and environs. Through delicate, labor-intensive drawing, Truong’s anomalous subjects examine the possibility of hair as a veil and as an object of comfort, while also remaining a self-consuming and self-inspiring muse.

    Exquisite work. The detail she uses in her illustrations reminds me of Justin Bryan Nelson’s work: http://www.littlepaperplanes.com/artist/463-justin-nelson. He is extremely talented!! He uses similar technique as far as making fibers look fit to touch, not quite 2-d but not quite 3-d.

    Very cool and freaky at the same time. And it’s all so very beautiful. For some reason, I’ve always been fascinated by how illustrators draw long hair. When I was a kid, I so wished I could draw hair like the ones you see in anime and asian comic books. The details of each strand blows my mind.

    I love these drawings! This artist was featured in one of Worn Fashion Magazine’s issues on hair… her drawings for that were incredible too!
