For a long time, the artist was seen as somebody who had access to the true nature of life, the genuine, higher truth, maybe even to the sublime. It was his job to make this knowledge comprehensible for the common man. Truc-Anh, however, does something radically different. What Truc-Anh shows is the confusing part of life. He presents a fractured world and tries to seek his own way, away from the everyday routine, connecting past and present. Or how Kara Rooney defined it adequately: “In Truc-Anh’s world there is no paradise, only paradise lost”.

The work of Truc-Anh is widely appreciated including in the popular media. As such, the work has been presented in TV programmes such as a documentary on Vietnamese Channel VTC 10 and BFM Business TV “chercheurs d’Art”, France. Printed publications among others in Le Monde and Asia Pacific Almanac.
