Artist Statement

The exhibition Hangover constitutes a selection of paintings by the young Ho Chi Minh City-based artist Phuc Thien Hoang, working in acrylic, oil, and mixed media. This is his first exhibition outside of Vietnam, and his second solo exhibition to date.

What we see in many of these works (such as the eponymous triptych Hangover (2022)) is a sober person’s perspective on a drunken scene.
