Artist's Statement:

For me, art is an escape from reality into a new reality. It makes me feel a completely new emotion, a strange feeling of freedom. When I start, I’m just excited to mix the colours, I try to challenge myself with a new way of creating that I’ve never tried before. My colors make the impossible possible.  That is why my paintings differ, both in style and in mood. The most important thing 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. Sometimes the influence of European Masters can be detected but I am mostly a Vietnamese artist. This is at the very heart of my decisions with regards to picture plan or perspective, my choice of subject matter or use of color – yellow, green, blue…

After all, I want to bring love, happiness and pleasure to the hearts of people.
