Le Quoc Thanh (Lê Quốc Thành)
Le Quoc Thanh (b.1975, Vietnam) works ambivalent to the trends and demands of the art market, he is known to stay in his studio day-in day-out, pursuing his artistic vision with exceptional sincerity and dedication. Thanh employs painting and assemblage as his primary media, often blending the boundaries between the two, where he incorporates found objects and snippets of text into his paintings. His work possesses a character entirely of its own, drawing not only from traditional art reference points, but also eastern and western mythology and philosophy, the artist’s personal history, and the ubiquitous landscape of globalized material culture. His work can also be found in the Post Vidai collection.
