Duca - Duke Tran
Dr. Duc Tran

My granddad and my father were artists. Through them and their friends I learned art and philosophy. However, my mom wanted an engineer in our family. So I became an instructor of the University of Saigon, South Vietnam. I taught Physics and Chemistry and went on to teach Math at High School and College level in the United States.
When I am creating, I mix colors in a similar way to the waves of light that mix on a television screen, or the lights of a rainbow after rain. I seek out the chemical formulas within the colors to aid in preventing a chemical reaction in my artwork, once they are exposed to the light and environment.
Although Iím a new artist in the United States, Iím a recognized one in Vietnam. I was an Arizona Fine Art EXPO artist at Scottsdale, Arizona.
I feel comfortable with a variety of media and techniques: watercolor, oil color, pencil, acrylic, pastel, sumi ink, etc; as well as on silk paper, canvas, metal sheets, especially on silk and on silver or gold leaves under lacquer
Drawing is my need and a way to express my feelings with efforts to transfer them directly to viewers without communication by words.
