Thi My Le

Thi My Le immigrated to Australia from Vietnam. She became a visual artist with the help of her Australian mother and through her own determination

I break away from the traditional painting style, the traditional, let's say like schools, schooling style that kind of painting, the technique from school, schooling like what you were taught from the University, how to paint and how to make shadows, make it look like 3D views or something. It's not that important any more and I found myself break away from that and I relate in my art more to do with everyday life using basic elements, using everyday life’s materials such as shoes, rice, clothing, skeletons, you know just something recognisable or familiar with average like, .. that kind of everyday materials.
