Main Street Projects says
Mid Main Houston and Main Street Projects invite you to celebrate the debut of a fresh mural on the blocks, "It's Raining Cats and Dogs," by brothers Vincent di Nguyen and Peter Nguyen.

Join us for a Happy Hour to thank these standout artists for their contribution to the neighborhood and to the Mid Main community.

Against the trend of Houston artists who find success elsewhere and continue to pursue projects outside of Houston, this duo has made it a point to return to their hometown with enthusiasm and friendly nostalgia. Visual elements incorporated into this site-specific mural highlight the brothers’ signature style of illustration. From “raining cats and dogs” to “Burger Time,” an insatiable cactus, and graffiti playtime, the mural includes icons and associations from their childhood spent in Houston/Texas.

Vincent di Nguyen graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. Clients include HarperCollins; Scholastic; Sterling Publishing; Random House; Simon & Schuster, Inc; and Marshall Cavendish. Di Nguyen has contributed to such feature film projects as "Rio," "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs," "Horton Hears a Who!," "Ice Age: The Meltdown," and "Robots." He also illustrates children’s books and has been featured in such publications as "Spectrum, Society of Illustrators Annual;" "Communication Arts Illustration Annual," and "Out of Picture: Art from the Outside Looking In," volumes I and II.

Vincent's brother, Peter Nguyen, spent his childhood drawing and painting on whatever he could get his hands on. Currently working as a Color Key Artist at Blue Sky Studios, his work has influenced feature films such as "Horton Hears A Who and the Ice Age series and Rio 2." His artwork can also be found in "Out Of Picture II" and in DC Comics publications, achieving a boyhood dream to be a comic artist. In addition to his printed projects, Peter's art has been exhibited in galleries domestically as well as internationally, such as Paris, France. Peter is currently residing in New York City and continues to work for animation and comic books. His art has graced the covers of "Batman Confidential" and Detective Comics.
