Nguyen Thanh Truc born and raised in Ho Chi Minh city, graduated from Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts University. Since 1996, his works got selected for Phillip Morris Award exhibition. From then on, Truc has diligently and silently worked on mostly abstract paintings. His interest in photography also creates a balanced experimentation of forms and mediums. His works always evokes a sense of time, history and fragments. This is something very difficult to grasp, intangible yet very easy to relate to when looking at his works.
