The artist

Hien-Tu is a self-taught French Canadian artist based in Montreal QC Canada. After spending her university years studying science, she rediscovered her childhood passion for the visual arts. Although she had spent her life appreciating visual beauty, she finally had the opportunity to recreate it with her brushes and paints in 2018, and her works have been in exhibitions ever since.

 

Through her abstract art, Hien-Tu expresses both her feelings and her thoughts, while her life experiences leave their mark on her work. Drawing inspiration from her emotions and from nature, Hien-Tu creates unique paintings that are the meeting place between strength and softness, calm and liveliness, as well as radiance and introspection.

 

In addition to painting for herself and for her collectors, her works have been selected for such varied projects such as editorial wedding photography, magazines, and interior design. Through her art, Hien-Tu wishes to inspire the world to celebrate the beauty of every moment of life.

Portrait of Hien-Tu

Artist statement

Through painting, I seek the awakening of the senses and the beauty of the moment. Life, nature, flora and the ocean are my main sources of inspiration. Acrylic, watercolor and mixed media enable me to explore both freedom and control of movement. With interplays of textures and overlays of mediums, I want to create an encounter with emotions, question the present and the unknown, and make one want to look beyond. As sources of self-reflection, my colors liberate the mind, leaving the observer free to experience my paintings.
