Vietnamese Artists

Van Anh

Vietnam has many incredible artists and galleries and having spent a month here, I appreciate their art more now. Nguyen Tien Chung and Pham Hoang Minh are two favorite Vietnamese artists.

Chung was born in Hanoi and graduated from the Indochina Fine Arts College. Minh graduated from the Hanoi Institute of Industrial Fine Arts and specialized in monumental scientific study (large wall paintings).

Chung creates woodcutting and lacquer and silk paintings focusing mainly 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.

Pham Hoang Minh

“With the millennium of Chinese domination starting in the 2nd century BC, Vietnamese art undoubtedly absorbed many Chinese influences, which would continue even following independence from China in the 10th century AD.  By the 19th century, French influence took hold in Vietnam, having a large hand in the birth of modern Vietnamese art. However, Vietnamese art has always retained many distinctively Vietnamese characteristics.”
