SEASON 1 - SCULPTOR

TRẦN DUY

Hailing from Quảng Nam in picturesque Vietname, Duy was born into a family that embraced artistry and its significant impact on the society it was in. The son of Thu Tran, an equally respected sculptor and widely recognized as one of the masters of Vietnamese sculpture, Duy would grow up not immediately seeing the value and impact that woodworking would have in his life.

A young man pushing the limits of his medium, Duy creates pieces that inspire meaning, joy, and cheer in all those who see them. He is effortlessly showcasing to the world the artistry that has been in their family for decades and is highlighting just how wood can be such an amazing medium to work with.

Growing up in what he described as “the middle of nowhere,” Duy wanted nothing but to escape and to travel, to wander and to see and experience what other things life had to offer him apart from what he already had within his sleepy little village. And wander he did—for a time, Duy wandered all throughout Asia, hitchhiking in some places, and working odd jobs in others, just so he could continue being a nomad, and experience the world at his own pace.
That all changed on one fateful trip to an undisclosed mountain in Thailand. As he was gazing at the sky, he began to introspect, perhaps mulling over the many insights he’s collected over the courses of his trips around Asia, and he realized that he wanted to create something meaningful—he wanted to create something that people could see and touch, and that would give them joy.

It didn’t take long before he realized that the art he grew up with was the perfect candidate for giving people exactly that. He wrapped up the rest of his wandering around Asia, went back home, and decided to dedicate his time to learning all that he can from his father and their woodcarving factory.

“[Now,] I’m more used to making complicated things, difficult things. Now, I can slowly imagine how to make it.”

Duy and his woodwork are simply a continuation of what his father started: his father originally learned woodworking in order to provide for himself and his family, and he eventually passed on this knowledge to those in his village. Duy is doing the same but with a wider and more contemporary audience in mind. Come discover his work right here on Ronin.
