Vietnamese Artists Hanoi Vietnam

Van Anh

Vietnam has many incredible artists and galleries and after spending a month here, I have a much better appreciation for Vietnamese art. Nguyen Tien Chung and Pham Hoang Minh are two favorite Vietnamese artists.

Chung creates woodcutting and lacquer and silk paintings focusing on the rural lives of Vietnamese people. In 1946 he won the Grand Prize at the National Fine Arts Exhibition in Vietnam. From 1955 to 1965 he taught at the Fine Arts College of Vietnam and many of his works are on display there.

History and Influence

“With a millennium of Chinese domination starting in the 2nd century BC, Vietnamese art absorbed many Chinese influences. After independence from China in the 10th century AD this continued. By the 19th century, French influence took hold in Vietnam and helped shape the birth of modern Vietnamese art. Despite Chinese ad French influence, Vietnamese art has always retained many distinctively Vietnamese characteristics.”
