Winnie Truong is the Artist of the Month

October 2, 2015

Cinders Gallery Presents

Artist of the Month :: Winnie Truong

Friday October 9th 7-10pm

Winnie Truong is a Toronto based artist working in pencil crayons on paper to produce large scale portraits that challenge our ideas of beauty and discomfort.

Using pencil, crayon, and chalk pastel on giant sheets of paper, Truong creates portraits with great detail. Her aim is to explore notions of beauty and discomfort and, inspired by science fiction, she portrays hair in all its ‘whiskery, wispy, curly, bristly’ brilliance.

Winnie Truong was born in Toronto, where she still lives, and received her BFA in painting and drawing from Ontario College of Art and Design.

We will release a brand new letterpress print with Winnie at the show!
