“Painting to me represents presence, freedom and a constant search for meaning all in one. Who are we beyond the identities our environment projects on us? I rarely plan my paintings, and they never look the same. Similarly, like water, our sense of self is fluid, ever-changing, adapting and evolving. I suppose, in one word, my work is a reflection of ‘freedom,’ and an invitation for others to discover themselves in it.‘”
“The art in my project is not the result, its the process. The process of two humans getting to know each other and the documentation of this process. Establishing connection between two humans and for some hours feeling safe, heard, understood and free.” With our series “An artist´s life.” we want to share the stories of the people behind the art.
What is art? For me it is being fully myself. Art is my love for nature, for paper, for drawings. Connecting with my inner child and everything that used to amuse me in the world and was forgotten during the teenage stormy years. Now I am thankful for being able to practice yoga with candles and scents. Having flowers on my desk.
“I’m a 21 Vietnamese girl and I’m currently living in Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. I was born in 1998 and in a family where nobody loves art. I used to feel ashamed of being an art-lover because my whole family doesn´t care about it and they want me to do something which brings a lot of money, and they believe that money is the only thing that can bring happiness.

“I don’t think that being an artist is something you choose. I believe that at some point in life you just realize that your only choice is to express yourself. It doesn’t matter how. You just have to.”
As a multimedia abstract painter, together with working as a model for the past 8 years, I have been intimidated and demeaned by many professionals when entering the world of art. The behaviours I have encountered has left me feeling discouraged and intimidated – solely on the fact of my previous profession.
With our new series “An artist´s life.” we want to share the stories of the people behind the art. “No matter what field an artist works in, there’s one thing that binds us all: that strange duality of money versus passion. We’re all on that spectrum somewhere, everything we do. Are you that person who’s almost completely sold their artistic soul, lingering at the money end? Or perhaps you’re the other, struggling to pay the bills, sharing a room with several half-finished projects, loving every second of the starvation? Me? I might have found that particular balance, albeit an uncommon one.”
” I started bringing my camera with me everywhere just in case there’s an opportunity to take an interesting photo. I don’t even know what it is exactly that I think is interesting, but it’s usually something unexpected and possibly overlooked by others. It’s an organized artistic crime. It’s a subtle form of rebellion to embrace eccentric interests in creating, what I perceive to be, beautiful images.”
always wonder what will remain of this very moment? Of this photo I took? Of me? I have the dreams from my childhood, since then I know what I want to pursue but will I succeed? Will I be able to live from it? I don’t mind doing corporate jobs as a a video editor or photographer, they pay the bill, but I want more.
“I’ve been thinking for months now how to dive deeper within myself to reflect in my art. With that, I have asked myself a range of questions, tried to step out of myself to really see other’s perspective and really just allowed myself the space to remain honest about my process. One of the biggest questions I receive from my audience is, “why women?”
Today for some reason I feel that I should think about my artistic journey. I try my best not to focus on the growth and mainly focus on developing, because the world is ever changing and so is art. ““I completely forgot how personal art is and if you loose yourself, you can loose what art means to you.”
