Tran Quang Dai travels the world with a suitcase packed with moments in life. A public figure, who graduated from ULAW HCMC in IP Law, now using canvas as a medium to communicate with a glimpse of imperfect coexisting memories. Even though Quang Dai’s portraits are drawn from real subjects, their non-figurative faces give us a detached perspective, yet we can easily connect and make them as personal as we want them to be.
Almost detaches from all techniques, concepts, or theory, but insists on the clumsiness of raw emotions. “How are you these days?” is like the author’s protracted performance practice. He takes his journey into the art world by constantly having a solo exhibition and experiencing a psychological concept where one is asked a question over and over again, one is likely to have a different response every time, to the core, till the end. “How are you these days?” has drawn attention with its ongoing journey.
His passion and hard work have made him the first Vietnamese artist to have a solo exhibition in MOCA Bangkok.
