 Van Chu


 

Van Chu is a Vietnamese artist who came to the United States in 2001. He got received a Master of Fine Art from the University of Utah in 2010 in

DigitalImaging/Photography. His works have been in exhibitions across the country from Los Angeles to New York City, juried by such

curators including: Maura Lynch, assistant curator of drawings at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC; Nathan Trotman, associate

curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Samantha Rippner, curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Christiane Paul from

the Whitney Museum of American Art. Van Chu has also been the recipient of multiple first place awards from high profile curators such as

Elisabeth Sussman from the Whitney Museum of American Art, Lauren Hinkson from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Felice Frankel

from Harvard University. Van Chu’s photographic artworks carry the spirit of traditional Chinese painting but combined with the use of

modern technology, acrylic, water and calligraphy ink, they depict a portrait of the artist himself as an outsider on the American shore.

They give tradition a breath of fresh air while determine to connect what came before us and what is yet to come.
