Hong Viet Dung
Dreamy with girls with braids, a boy with a bird cage vague in a quiet late autumn sunset. A sluggish boat, a deep-green road, and a quiet field, the scenery is far but near, real but unreal. Hong Viet Dung has released pieces of his memory on the works to create amazing virtual landscape imbued with an oriental romantic and classic atmosphere. Said by the artistic critic Phan Cam Thuong “Hong Viet Dung has always paid attention to the simple entire of a landscape, presenting the air and steam which dissolve all the shapes. His technique has not been much changed but deeper and deeper.” Hong Viet Dung (1962) is one of scarce artists pursuing the style of Reality and Manifestation in the contemporary art of Vietnam. He is a member of the Gang of Five, the group of leading artists of Vietnam in Doi Moi time besides other one such as Dang Xuan Hoa, Ha Tri Hieu, Tran Luong, and Pham Quang Vinh. Many of Dung works have been introduced in exhibitions and artistic event in Singapore, France, Hong Kong, the US, Australia, Malaysia, Belgium, or Thailand or included in the collections in Singapore, the US, and Vietnam.
