Library Art Gallery: Tuan D. Thai, Oils

Chicago, The End of the Tunnel by Tuan D ThaiLocal artist Tuan D. Thai says painting has been his passion "as long as I can remember." After completing art school at the University of Utah, Tuan moved to the Woodridge and Downers Grove area. Painting in oils, his work encompasses large landscapes that stretch across two or three canvases, cityscapes, still lifes and portraits. He does not adhere to a particular painting style, and says viewers may observe palette knife work, brush work or a combination of techniques in his pieces. Tuan's paintings will be featured in the Lobby Art Gallery throughout June, with an additional large landscape hanging near the Friends Book Sale.
