Anh Trần (1989, Bến Tre, VN) paints vibrant abstract paintings to interrogate her insider-outsider status as a Vietnamese artist working within a Western paradigm. Anh utilises painting methodologies and materials used by abstract painters of the Western canon, to challenge ideas about in/visibilities within a contemporary context.
She lives and works between Auckland (NZ) and Amsterdam (NL), where she was a resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten. Trần received her Master of Fine Arts with first-class honours from Elam School of Fine Arts, the University of Auckland in 2016. She has exhibited at Artspace Aotearoa; Window gallery; St Paul gallery, Auckland and play_station gallery, Wellington (NZ).
