Diamond Eucharist

Diamond Eucharist

Graphite and watercolor pencils on paper

“The Bertinelli Diamond is very sacred. The refractions inside of it reveal the secrets to finding Bertinelli’s treasure. In this piece, the Eucharist is replaced by the diamond to emphasize the Eucharist’s importance. The Christian tradition celebrates Jesus Christ and the Last Supper. The Eucharist alone symbolizes many different things to each and every individual. This practice never dies, it only grows.”

How old are you?
17

Have you had any formal training in the arts? Where? When? How long?
As early I can remember, I think I was born to draw.

What do you do for a living? Do you create art professionally?
I’m a senior at Thomas Jefferson Academy.

Besides art, what are your other interests – professional or otherwise?
I want to pursue Studio Arts at the University of New Orleans and Art Management at Loyola University New Orleans. I want to start off teaching kids art, and, in the future, I plan on building an art college right here in New Orleans.

Are you Catholic yourself? Are you a convert to the faith or a “cradle Catholic”?
I was recently confirmed with my Confirmation class in May, 2021.

Vinh intends on auctioning this piece of art, but the Catholic non-profit organization that will receive a donation from a portion of the winning has yet to be determined.
