Nguyen Dinh Dung
Born 1943 in Hanoi, Vietnam and now lives and works in Hanoi. Self taught artist. Began working as an illustrator for a Vietnam cartoon film factory in 1961. By 1972 he had achieved the position of cartoon film director with Vietnam television. Today, his paintings are characterized by strong contrasting colour fields in pure hue and intensity. While deeply rooted in the Asian tradition of painting his work yields a surprisingly modern sense of feeling and expression. He has collections in Sweden, France, Belgium, Germany, Japan and the UK.
