Tony Nguyen "Hollywood Citizen"

Tony Nguyen "Hollywood Citizen," Digital Collage, 2010 27” x 40” For the final project in his Digital Arts Static Image course, Tony Nguyen chose to create a self-portrait digital collage comprised of movie posters. The objectives of the final project were to apply the software and techniques learned over the semester into an artistic piece. Hollywood Citizen consists of 234 films ranging from 1915 to 2009. The films that were included were chosen based on either iconic status of the film or the art of the poster itself. Nearly 300 layers of Photoshop were used. Hollywood Citizen won the Dean’s Purchase Award in the 2011 Annual Undergraduate Exhibition. It is currently displayed in the Dean’s Office in the Woods Art Building.
