Tina Tran is a self-taught Sydney-based artist who explores abstract forms in the media of drawing and painting. Whether using acrylic paint on canvas or pencil, coloured graphite, watercolour or ink on various paper stocks, Tran creates organic and undulating abstract forms that meld together.Born in Sydney in 1985, Tran began her art practice in 2003, receiving her first accolade when her High School Certificate (HSC) body of work entitled, When you see a flower and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment was selected for ArtExpress 2003 and exhibited at Sydney city’s David Jones window display in December 2003 and Hazelhurst Regional Arts and Crafts Centre in January 2004. After completing high school in 2003, Tran studied for a Bachelor of Business at the University of Technology, Sydney; a decision that temporarily curtailed her art practice. Upon completing her degree in 2006, Tran refocused on the development of her art making, supporting herself through part-time work. Buoyed by this new creative focus in her life, in late 2007 Tran joined a group of like-minded friends and family members residing in the Cabramatta and Canley Vale precincts of Sydney, to establish the Popperbox collective. Inspired by group painting performances by art collectives broadcasted over the internet, the Popperbox collective became a vehicle to creatively collaborate on a variety of public and interactive art projects. In April 2008, in conjunction with Fairfield City Council, Popperbox performed a live drawing performance entitled Glassbox, at Cabravale Leisure Centre in Cabramatta, Sydney. In addition to the work of the Popperbox collective, Tran has had an active solo practice. Tina Tran brings an emotive and intuitive approach to her abstract painting and drawing. Recent success in her solo endeavours has been reflected in a number of group exhibitions throughout 2008 including “Populous Cast” at Global Gallery (Sydney), “Black and Blue 2” at Pigment Gallery (Melbourne) and “Square 1 Art Auction” at Mori Gallery (Sydney).
