Quách Huy Bắc
Born in 1988 in Hanoi, graduated from Central Arts Education University (2010) and Vietnam Fine Arts University (2015), Quach Bac has established himself as one of emerging artists of Vietnam.
Quach Bac draws on memory and new perspectives on familiar things, endeavours to capture with visual language what a poet expresses with words. By way of being emotionally expressive he seeks to provide a deeper understanding of the human condition and the world we inhabit, which to him is quite gloomy - marked by loneliness, monotony, poverty, emptiness and unrealistic values. Quach Bac says that through his work he is looking to find the most private and quite space in his mind and from there travel deeper yet, to a realm where he can no longer trust his own memory. He is appreciated both for his painting skills and th philosophical approach he has to his work.
Bac has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, which include: ‘Fall into the Horizon’ – Manzi Art Space, Hanoi – 2019; ‘The Sky of Fame’ – Craig Thomas Gallery, Ho Chi Minh City – 2016; ‘Limited n’ Infinite’ – Heritage Space, Hanoi - 2016; ‘Bravo’ – Gia Tan Village, Quang Minh, Hanoi – 2015; ‘My Pleasure’ – Cuci Fine Art, Hanoi – 2014.
