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.

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.
