Triệu Minh Hải
b. 1982, Hanoi
Starting out as a computer engineer, Hải left his IT job to pursue a career in the art. He gained a Bachelor degree in Painting from the Vietnam University of Fine Art in 2013 and has been active in the Hanoi art scene ever since. Triệu Minh Hải’s former background in engineering has triggered his interest in the relationship between art and science. Employing various mediums such as pencil drawing, painting, ceramic and video to visualise his observation and scientific understanding of natural phenomena, Triệu Minh Hải is particularly fascinated with the laborious process of creating his work. He has exhibited in group exhibitions both at home and abroad including The Foliage 2 (2018, VCCA, Hanoi), From silence to shouting (2018, Peace Foundation, Jeju), Miền Méo Miệng (2015, Bildmuseet, Umea) and Latcarf-Fractal (2014, Nhà Sàn Collective).
