Vo Ta Hung
Born in 1955 in Ha Tinh Province in Vietnam. Between 1977-83 he studied art at the Industrial College of Arts and has exhibited his unique oil paintings all over the world. For over 20 years Hung has been a teacher at the famous Hanoi Fine Arts College, where most of the great Northern Vietnamese artists are trained. Hung’s subjects are taken from the Vietnamese countryside, workers in paddy fields walk the paths and birds plunge into the marshes for fish. Hung’s work allows a certain Byronic view of Vietnamese lifestyle that is not easy to forget.
