Phan Thu Trang graduated from the Theatre and Cinema University and is currently a member of the Vietnam Young Painters' Association. In 2005, she held a solo show as part of the International Art Fair in Singapore and recently held a successful solo show at the Hilton Hanoi.
Growing up in Hanoi, Trang's mind is replete with images of the countryside and Northern villages. She incorporates these vivid memories of the villagers and their lives to her paintings. She likes to express these emotions in her works, portraying subject matter such as women heading to the market at dawn, farmers commuting on bicycles on village roads, peaceful afternoons or hot summer days.
