TRAN THUY LINH
Tran Thuy Linh was born in Hanoi. Early at the age of eight, she had painting lessons with professional artists of the University of Fine Arts in Hanoi and also with her mother, a professional artist. Later, when studying literature & Linguistics at Leipzig University in Germany she continued her extramural art studies. Back to Vietnam after her graduation in 1988, she pursued her painting studies in Vietnam and has been become a professional artist. Her works can be found in national and international exhibitions in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, USA, Korea, Singapore, Mongolia and Taiwan in recent years. Her private collections now are in Vietnam, Germany, USA, Australia, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
Tran Thuy Linh works primarily in oil and acrylics and has been always seeking for the answer “Where do I belong to within the inter-relations of East nature - Serenity and Western culture - Energy?” Her artistic communication is inspired by the experience of years in Europe, by the depths of Vietnamese culture and by the beauty of nature. Especially, her flowers art works open a world full of energy & movements leading viewers to the infinite of imagination.
The chosen style of semi-abstract and abstract painting gives her a sense of freedom, allowing herself to be carried away by impromptu and spontaneous feelings. Using lines and shades of colors with large brushes and pallet knives, her works lure the imagination of viewer to the different world of himself and he would find himself part of it.
