"Thanh Chuong - Lacquer Paintings"
2003-11-25 until 2003-12-20
Art U
Osaka, , JP Japan

In Vietnam, the art of traditional lacquer handicraft had met Western painting during the period of colonial rule by France, and saw development of a new genre of art unique to Vietnam, called lacquer painting. Still today many are the artists who work in this privileged medium, among them Thanh Chuong distinguished himself by exploring bucolic theme and attracting a worldwide audience.

The work of Thanh Chuong is filled with the memories of his own childhood; the peaceful days he spent with buffalos in the middle of fresh and green rice paddy… In spite of his aspiration to be a painter since his very early years, he had no choice but to spend his adolescence in the battlefield. Today he pursues the innocent world of children, surrounded by the low voices of prayers for peace.
