The Bellarine Paintings and Photography
Following in my father’s footsteps to become an architect seemed to be my life’s course until … I decided to follow my own path. I stopped studying architecture and applied for a sought after position at the university of Fine Art in Ho Chi Minh City. There were 1500 applicants for only 30 places and I was extremely happy to be selected for one of them. For 5 years I concentrated on my Fine Art studies and earned money to support myself painting for several galleries.
What then followed were my own galleries in Vietnam, Switzerland’s skiing resort of St. Moritz and now the Fat Fox Art Gallery in Bellarine. After the hot and humid climate in Vietnam and the freezing winters in St. Moritz (locals there talk about 8 months winter, 4 months cold!) the perfect place would be where there are 4 seasons in one day ... the Bellarine Peninsula!
Five years ago my wife and I opened the Fat Fox Art Gallery in Bellarine. Right from the beginning we felt very much at home. This beautiful peninsula is my new source of inspiration.
Reviewers of my paintings, fine art photography and graphic artwork have said:
“Trung’s initiative spirit has enabled him to embrace different techniques and styles throughout his career. Recently though, he returned to his original medium – Oil. This new series of work clearly demonstrates his intensive knowledge of this medium and reflects his years of study in this area. Those 15 oil paintings, titled ‘Engadin – Light and Shadow’ depict the Engadin Mountains”.
“This versatile artist's love of nature shines through his work, of which the water-panoramas are fine examples. Trung's art works of the local landscape capture the very essence of the scenery. The willingness to explore new methods and refine techniques has produced striking photographic art works where the depth of beauty and the 'true' light of the study invite the viewer to move into a space of quiet contemplation.”
“The exciting graphic artwork of Trung Truong is now on display at the Galerie Kunsthalle St. Moritz. Trung’s work vividly brings to life the landscape and sporting life of St. Moritz and the Engadin. In his exploration of the graphic art world Trung has been creatively energised – the vitality of the work is unmistakable and his passion evident.”
I am proud to say that my artworks are in colections around the world from Australia to Europe as well as Brazil, Hong Kong, Japan, Russia, Vietnam and the USA.
