Artist: Luong Luu Bien
Le Vo Tuan was born in the central province of Quang Binh, 33-year-old Le Vo Tuan was destined to be an artist thanks to the fact that his father, a reputable painter in the 80s and 90s, exposed him to the art of painting in early childhood. It was the first-hand experience of many beautiful andcolorful pictures inspired by his father that Tuan was desperately dreaming to become an artist.
Tuan got a place of intermediate level at Hue College of Arts when he was 16. During the time at college, he had a host of artworks displayed at exhibitions organized for college students. After three years, Tuan was one of the two talented students who were chosen to attend the levelof higher education at Hue College of Arts in the 1999-2004 academic year.
Painting is a passion and an imaginative world where Tuan can freely unleashes his dreams. His artistic thoughts gradually emerged during the time at college,creating a favorable environment to shape him as a truly professional artist.
All Tuan’s artworks manifest his distinct ego in a messy world. From that perspective, he resorts to an indirect way to break down surrounding matters to realize his own world. Tuan is a young artist who is fond of exploring art in various forms such as video, installation, performance and painting. His works of art dig deep into the individuals’ inner mind and psychological state to uncover hidden mysteries, certainties and questions on human dignity. Tuan’s pictures also set up a whole new world of privacy full of surreal realism and paranoiacdivergence shaped by frontal exposure.
Art in Tuan’s mind is a non-stop long-lasting journey andan isolated space for him to harness absolute tranquility without any noise and disturbance which is reflected inhis masterpieces. Art is his ego and an inevitable profession bound to his personality, showing what is inside his mind and his heart.
