Truong Thanh was born in 1979 in Haiduong, Vietnam. He studied architecture at the Hanoi University of Civil Engineering from 1997 to 2002.
In the process of learning and working in Vietnam, he has participated in several research architecture and the design competitions. He received the gold medal from WIPO (World Intellectual Propeerty Organization) and first prize for scientific research on housing developments from VIFOTEC (Vietnam Fund for Supporting Technological Creations).
He started painting in mid-2013, and has focused his practice on the use of three-dimensional geometry, and research on the structures of objects and their response to forces. He is inspired by constructivist and minimalist art, where most of the canvas's surface is left blank. He wants people to see the structural model, from the primitive to the formation of a stable equilibrium, and where it finally breaks down.
He has participated in exhibitions in Sydney, Berlin, Paris, and throughout Vietnam.
