About
Truc Chi GRAPHY - An acculturation in the contemporary context Originated from Hue in 2012, Truc Chi is now a valuable part of the new art culture of Hue, Vietnam. The art of Truc Chi was developed by artist Phan Hai Bang, professor at Hue University of the Arts, and colleagues. Together they have built upon the traditional art of paper crafting, utilizing a wide variety of materials, different techniques, and novel ideas, to create a new form of art and new cultural values, adding to the already rich culture of Hue. About 1km from the Imperial City of Hue, Truc Chi Garden with flowers and green bamboo trees is located at 5 Thach Han, Hue. This is where everyone can find a tranquil green space distinctive of Hue city, and discover a new form of art. Here people may enjoy an artistic space with many works of Truc Chi art on display, as well as handcrafting Truc Chi artworks. In addition to visual artworks created by the artists, people can also appreciate the spirit of Hue city, and the spirit of Vietnam through various products designed to bring forth traditions under contemporary forms and ideas, such as: Truc Chi cone hats, handmade bamboo fans, and elegant bamboo-framed umbrellas. With Truc Chi art, Lang Sinh artworks and Hue kites are presented under a new light. Beside viewing artworks, anyone can become an artisan by handcrafting Truc Chi products for themselves with the help of many enthusiastic Truc Chi artists! Exploring locally produced materials (bamboo being the main material), along with artistic creativity, Truc Chi breathes new life into simple bamboo trees, creating new values but not without carrying old traditions forward. Thus Truc Chi contributes much to the existing wealth of arts and culture of Hue. Since establishment in 2011 by artist Phan Hai Bang, then named by author/translator Buu Y in 2012, Truc Chi art has had many activities in research, exhibitions, and workshops within Vietnam as well as internationally, and received many national awards in visual arts and applied arts. At the same time, using principles of paper crafting and printmaking, the term “Trucchigraphy” was coined and recognized, to be used in the world of visual arts as well as in life. With the mission of: Aesthetics - Education - Society, Truc Chi Art of Vietnam has been recognized as appropriate actions aligning with the values and traditions within the contemporary context, by researchers and intellectuals of Hue, Vietnam.

There was a video explaining everything and the experience is well paced and so enjoyable and we got to take home our paintings too..! We left wanting more..!

This was our last activity after a busy day of touring, and we weren’t sure what to expect. Paper art? Sounds boring. What a surprise though to be treated to a hands on experience to learn how Truc Chi is made - really beautiful work and so fun to be able to get a hands on experience. We made our own truc chi and were able to take it home that day. So fun! Would highly recommend this activity or at least visiting the gallery.

This gallery is a hidden gem with a beautiful garden and valuable works of art made in a traditional way. I have really enjoyed the visit (in English) and this was one of my best cultural outings, along with the embroidery museum of Huê.

This had to have been one of our favorite activities of our Vietnam trip. Seriously. This burgeoning art form is fascinating: I appreciate the way it seeks to combine traditional symbols and style with new the process of paper making. The staff were incredibly friendly and patient: encouraging us as we clumsily cut out our handmade stencils and frequently raising our hands as they gradually descended toward the paper due to our easily wearied arms. They also went out of their way to finish (dry and package) our work so we could take it with us as we were flying out the next morning: fitting 3 days of work in 7 hours!

They made this art accessible and the result was something truly unique and special for us to take home and remember our extraordinary trip. Kind of symbolic of Vietnam itself: traditional values and culture finding it's place in a rapidly progressing economy.

I highly recommend (almost require) a visit here if you're visiting Hue. Support the local artists!

We had a "hands on" experience in bamboo painting, and it made us appreciate this art form. This is a store, with many beautiful items for sale as well, and these are unique Authentic items. Well worth taking a look.

It is now located in 5 Thach Han, just about 500m from the previous address. I got a chance to talk to one of students working there, Thuan, and was taught how to use etching technique with bamboo pulp to create artworks . This gallery is so impressive and worth a visit to know more a out Hue contemporary art
