Artist's Statement:

For me, art is an escape from one reality into another. It makes me feel an emotion akin to freedom. When I start, I’m excited to mix colors, and I try to challenge myself with creating unique patterns. My colors make the impossible possible. For this reason, my paintings differ both in style and mood. The most important element for me is composition, uniting all the components — the application of color, the canvas, the subject matter, the arrangement, and the medium.

My works are very diverse, ranging from realistic to abstract. Although the influence of European Masters can sometimes be detected, I am for the most part a Vietnamese artist. This important distinction lies at the heart of my decisions with regards to picture plans or perspectives, my choice of subject matters or use of colors — yellow, green, blue…

At the end of the day, I desire to bring love, happiness and pleasure to the hearts of people.
