French Vietnamese artist to meet with Hanoi audiences (November 30, 2006)

Marcelino Truong Luc.
VietNamNet Bridge – The French Vietnamese artist Marcelino Truong Luc will meet with Hanoi audiences on November 1 at the French Cultural Centre L’Espace.

Truong Luc is a well-known artist for illustrating drawings for many books.

Luc was born in Malina, Philippines in 1957 and since 1983 he has worked as an artist, illustrating sketches. With strong colours in his paintings Luc has often made people think of the famous artist Gauguin.

Having worked closely with many big publishers in France, Luc also writes articles and create many cartoons as well as sketching illustrations for hundreds of books, articles, CDs, cartoons, documentary books, etc.

In 1995 Luc won the award at a book reading festival for the young in Bologna, France.

Luc has designed covers for many books of Vietnamese authors such as Nguyen Huy Thiep, Chu Lai, Duong Huong, Ho Anh Thai, Anna Moi, Nguyen Khac Truong etc. Books of these authors have been published in France.

Apart from that Luc has been invited to provide lectures in many French universities in Paris and other cities. He has had different talks with students of fine art, literature and journalism on the art of sketching illustrations.

Luc himself is the author of the famous book Hoa nuoc (Water flower) which is about Vietnam in the past before French colonial times.
