Vin Gallery is especially proud to be showcasing Richard Streitmatter-Tran’s latest series of work Profilia. In Prophilia, Ho Chi Minh City based artist Richard Streimatter-Tran looks to the mediated social world of profile images and considers their relation to the long tradition of portraiture paintings. Using social media networks, he takes profile images as initial references, now stripped of their meta information and contextual tagging in order to paint portraits that transform the subject - and in many cases, returns an image of the final paintings to the original posters.
