Dao Hai Phong
Dao Hai Phong is known as a unique face of Vietnam contemporary arts. Landscapes in his paintings are taciturn but dreamy, and they touch the deep memories of each thanks to his outstanding painting style which tell mores than the picture surface tells and color combination. The artistic critic Trinh Tu has commented a painting of Dai Hai Phong that “It is likely that the rural person within Dao Hai Phong still raises his voice in a secret manner, especially in his paintings depicting his village which is full of dreams. It is depicted in his painting with unclear time, unclear space but definitely a clear peaceful environment, etc.” Dao Hai Phong, born in 1965 is one of painters of Vietnam contemporary art emerged after Doi Moi. His works have been exhibited, displayed and included in various collections of paintings of Vietnam, Singapore, Switzerland, United Kingdom and many other countries in the world.
