Do Thanh Lang

Do Thanh Lang (b. 1986, Vietnam) studied painting at the Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts University. Approaching art practice with a rare instinct – visible through the craggy edges of his canvases, or the occasional insect fossilized by his resin pour – Do Thanh 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 work has been shown in a number of group exhibitions in Vietnam and regionally, such as fluorescent fog, Galerie Quynh, HCMC, Vietnam, 2020; ASIA NOW, Paris Asian Art Fair, Paris, France, 2019; Alluvium, Galerie Quynh, HCMC, Vietnam, 2018; Salt of the Jungle, Korea Foundation Gallery, Seoul, Korea and Vietnamese Women’s Museum, Hanoi, Vietnam, 2018; and Hopscotch, Galerie Quynh, HCMC, Vietnam, 2016. Lang has also participated in Spot Art Singapore 2014 (ARTrium @ MCI, Singapore) and undertaken the residency program The Brownian Movement at Heritage Space in Hanoi.
