Ngô Văn Sắc
Born in 1980, Ngo Van Sac graduated from Vietnam University of Fine Arts.
Sac’s works reflect the tension between real-life and a fantasy world and the complicated relationships between people while conveying his emotions and sharing his stories.
He employs a variety of mediums such as wood cut, wood burn combined with newspaper, sand or acrylic to create renderings of figures, texture and contrast between black and white. Each component of his art tells a story. Concrete figurative details and simple empty spaces refer to both real and imagined life as well as to dreams.
Besides having participated in many international group exhibitions (in Thailand, Malaysia, Hongkong, the Netherlands), Ngo Van Sac has held numerous notable solo exhibitions, most recently including: ‘Slices’ – Craig Thomas Gallery, Ho Chi Minh city – 2017; ‘In the midst of Life 2’ – A Gallery, Ho Chi Minh city – 2016; ‘Between Two Generations’ – The East Gallery, Toronto, Canada - 2013
