Artist's Statement

The artist has been awarded numerous prizes from both the the Hanoi and Vietnam Fine Arts Associations. His works have been shown in the sophisticated and exquisite "ao dai" designs by talented and skillful designers in the Hue Traditional Craft Festival 2017, including Festival of Ao dai themed "Hue Art and Ao dai" on April 30th at Trường Tiền bridge. Speaking to Pham Trinh, he is a painter of childhood, since it was his life in his bucolic countryside. After years of hard work, he could now share with viewers his memorable moments in childhood, such as playing flute, flying skites, singing and dancing, etc. Those activities could help him be a more active man, feel his own inner soul and feel totally relaxed since he wants to get rid of the hustle and bustle of cities. And his choice of painting is the only way he could show his talent and sophisticated techniques that he wants to distinguish himself from other artists in Vietnam.
