Vietnamese Artists | Trinh Tuan
Trinh Tuan was born in Hanoi, in 1961. He completed his BA at the Hanoi Industrial College of Fine Art in 1985, his MA at Hanoi Institute of Fine Art in 2000. His work is mostly figurative lacquer
painting. Using this medium he treats subjects such as
feelings and emotions. Often a single figure depicted
in his paintings can bring forth feelings of loneliness,
sadness, or happiness and love. Often his paintings
show couples with warm feelings for each other - or the
opposite. His figures seem to have feelings inside
which they unleash within his paintings. Tuan has
exhibited abroad several times, in countries such as Japan, China, Germany,
France, Argentina, Laos, Australia, USA, Thailand, Israel, Netherlands,
Taiwan, Hong Kong, Italy, Malaysia, Korea and India.
His paintings are represented in the collection of the
National Art Gallery of Malaysia.
