Vietnamese Artists | Dao Hai Phong


Dao Hai Phong is regarded as one of Vietnam’s most successful contemporary painters. He is best known for his distinct paintings of brilliant and gem like colored landscapes depicting villages of the old Hanoi. Dao Hai Phong was born in 1965 in Hanoi where his father was a famous film director. He graduated from the Hanoi College of Art, Film and Theatre in 1987. Regarded as one of Vietnam’s most successful painters that emerged after Doi Moi, Dao Hai Phong has exhibited extensively since 1992 in his native Vietnam as well as abroad. Highly regarded for his rendering of villages on the perimeter of Hanoi, his artistic journey has been one of memory and the preservation of a vanishing cultural geography of his youth. Dao Hai Phong’s paintings are based on his memories of the disappearing Hanoi he loves, and he attempts to preserve the disappearing cultural geography of his youth in his paintings. His use of glowing vibrant colors is reminiscent of sparkling gem stones and the rendering of textures on canvasses are translated into serene and lush vistas that emphasize the true nature of Vietnam. Thavibu Art has been very fortunate to have been granted access to the artist's personal collection and thus been able to put together a retrospective of some of his best works over the last decade. Dao Hai Phong is one of Vietnam's most commercially successful painters and has taken part in several international exhibitions in Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Italy, Laos, Switzerland and the USA as well as in Vietnam and Thailand.
