Truc-Anh

Biography

Born in 1983 in Paris, Truc-Anh studied at École Boulle, École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués, Paris; ECAL, Haute École d'Art et de Design, Lausanne, Switzerland; and La Cambre, École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels, Brussels, Belgium. His awards include the Prix Manganel (Lausanne, Switzerland), and Laureate of the Prix Photo Europa (France).

For Truc-Anh, painting and drawing provide a means for questioning the relation of representation to the existence of things, whether they are fantasy or products of a tangible reality. His paintings - or rather his mental images - are filled with waves of intense emotions and robust energy made possible by the artist's quintessential spontaneous and unrestrained brushwork.

Truc-Anh has held numerous solo exhibitions including The Cabinet of the Psychopomp, NL=US Art, Rotterdam, the Netherlands; Hua Thai Truc-Anh, Galerie Sator, Paris, France; 8 Skins, CODE Southway Studio, Marseille, France; Horizon of Unreason, curated by Isabelle Le Normand and Pierre Lefort, Baert Gallery, Los Angeles, USA; The Quantic Family, Tongerlohuys Museum, Roosendaal, Netherlands; and Vacuphilia, Pacific Design Center, Los Angeles, CA.
