Do Thanh Lang
Do Thanh Lang (b. 1986, Vietnam) studied painting at the Ho Chi Minh University of Fine Arts. Approaching art practice with a rare instinct – visible through the craggy edges of his canvas, or the occasional insect fossilized by his resin pour – Lang is aptly positioned to extract lightness from a dire situation. Dreamlike in all their hazy strangeness, his artworks are akin to pieces of a memory – a visual journal of altered consciousness. His select solo and group exhibitions include: fluorescent fog, Galerie Quynh, HCMC, 2020; ASIA NOW, Paris Asia Art Fair, Paris, France, 2019; Alluvium, Galerie Quynh, HCMC, Vietnam, 2018; Salt of the Jungle, Korea Foundation Gallery, Seoul, Korea, 2017 and Hopscotch, Galerie Quynh, HCMC, Vietnam, 2016.
