Trần Nguyễn Trung Tín
Born in 1992, Tran Nguyen Trung Tin graduated from Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts majoring in silk painting and currently works as an artist and illustrator.
Since Tin tends to let art do the speaking for him, his drawings become a shade of his expressions. While working, the more he learns about people, events, facts, objects, the more he realises his inner self. Portraits are his favourite subject and he calls them his “canvas for creativity. Some of them show his true feelings about one particular person, some are only manipulated images, the creative visions combined to express a specific mood or thought on current events crossing his mind.
His most notable exhibitions include: ‘When the Substance vs. the Dream, the Body flesh vs. the Immaculateness, the Idea vs. the Materiality – New Possibilities of Painting’ – The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, Ho Chi Minh city – 2017; ‘Exhibition for Youth’ – 2014; ‘Known Strangers’ – 2014; ‘The Dogma Prize’ – 2013
