 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 Digital Imaging/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.
