I met and spoke with Van Anh, a wonderful artist in Hanoi. She had this to say about her wonderful harvest studies:
"In nature, light is great crown, which increases the nobility and the majesty of mountains, forests, flowers, and grass. In painting, light forms the living shape and stroke, and is also the shape and the stroke itself. It can move or play on the canvas, depending on how big or small, thick or thin it is, and depending on the way it is arranged."

I asked Ha what he thought of the blossoming art scene in Vietnam, and he said:
"I am very glad to see Vietnamese Art in the world now. Between 1988 and 1990, seen by many as a landmark period in Vietnam and especially in Ho Chi Minh city, the first real art market came into being.
Earlier, back in the early 1980s, some overseas Vietnamese from U.S., Australia , and Canada came back to collect paintings of famous artists of pre-1975 Saigon, for example, Ngoc Dung, Thai Tuan , Vi Y, Duy Thanh, as well as the work of such renowned artists as Nguen Gia Tri, Bui Xuan Phai, et... Their activity gradually became a catalyst for the emergence of the new and exciting art market from 1990 onwards.
Before 1990, it was scarce for a Vietnamese artist to sell his painting for over USD$1,000. But since early 1992, however, the prices of Vietnam's paintings has soared up significantly due to their distinct quality. The price of about $3,000USD for a painting was quite common. In 1993, Ho Huu Thu's abstract lacquer paintings were sold at the price USD$15,000 to a Japanese collector . At the end of 1995, in Lavong Gallery in Hong Kong an oil-painting by the same artist was sold at USD 50,000, breaking all doubts on the prices of the artist's paintings in domestic market and providing a stimulus for other artists.
Also from the year 1990, many Vietnamese Artists were asked by collectors, galleries and the World Cultural Association to display their paintings at international Exhibition for the first time.
From then on a multinational market appeared featuring increasing numbers of international collectors coming to Vietnam to buy paintings on the spot, and to invite individual artists or groups of artists to participate in overseas exhibitions.
However opportunities for the majority of artists to exchange with the world are still scarce . For some gifted artists , their difficult financial conditions are a major obstacle as they do not easily have opportunities to come into contact with art collectors.
I am a painter and collector myself so thanks for including my paintings on this website, and to all of you reading, please buy Vietnamese art!"

Duy's paintings are executed in a muted, almost monochromatic palette. His drawing skill and mastery of light and shade is such that his work is fresh and apparently effortless. The carefully contoured backs of his slender, beautiful nudes, suggest an inner peacefulness, and the occasional use of flowers reveals the artistâ€™s romantic nature.
Born 1952, Nguyen Phan Hoa graduated from University of Fine Arts in 1983. He is a member of the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Association and the VietNam Fine Arts Association.

Sometimes using only black, sometimes combinations of primary colours, Vu Ha Nam produces compositions with faint echos of Picasso: ghost-like faces loom eerily through abstract landscapes or appear on the edges of a village, slightly contorted bodies pose provocatively.

"To us, truth does not exist in the outside world, but in the unconsciousness. Legends of very sensitive feelings where a more splendid, never-world has been created and where only stay the truth and the beauty."
I particularly like the imagery that 'never-world' conjures. (Apologies for any mistranslations, but I think I got it pretty much correct.)
