Twinkly Tus is a Vietnamese artist who studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, UK. While in college, she juggled the practice of singing, songwriting, visual image and video productions with her research on psychotherapy. The main message of her art is a call to acknowledge and heal childhood trauma from domestic violence. Her works have been exhibited in Freud Museum. She has also performed vocal improvisation at the Welcome Collection.
In conjunction with this year’s World Health Day’s theme “Depression: Let’s talk”, she released a music video for her song “No More Denial”. In contrast to the popular clean, high definition image and shot of most music videos, No More Denial takes advantage of the “unpolished” and used it to express rawness of emotions. This sends another message to viewers that art and music are for everyone. Whether you have money for state-of-the-art equipment or not, there should not be a limitation for you to start making art.
