Tran Tuan

``Through all forms,
  • immersed in the universe.``

Tran Tuan is a distinguished Vietnamese painter whose artworks have been widely exhibited nationally and internationally. Inspired by Eastern spirituality, his abstract pieces appear at first to be wholly minimalist and contained, when in fact they contain striking intensity and vibrancy, primarily achieved through a vivid colour palette and layering techniques. Tran’s resulting works provide each viewer with a glimpse into his innermost thoughts. His artwork “My Hanoi city” was ranked third in the top ten of the competition “Bright light – Big city” organized by Saatchi Gallery-London-May, 2013 with the participation of 2000 artists worldwide.
