Bui Trong Du

Bui Trong Du was born in 1976 in Hai Phong, Vietnam. Du studied at Vietnam Fine Art University and graduated in 2002. The artist’s favourite medium is lacquer on wood and he likes to use different materials such as egg shell, mother of pearl, silver and gold leaf to highlight details and beautify his works. His simplicity style speaks a volume and his use of striking colours always brings about a very calm and peaceful feeling.

 

Du’s inspiration is Vietnamese women in traditional dress, Ao Dai – “to me, the image of ladies in Ao Dai is the typical Vietnamese beauty – gentle, discrete yet very charming”. Birds and fishes appear a lot in his paintings - they come from his memory of childhood growing up in the countryside, caring for buffalos on the fields. 

 

Hanoi Art House has been showcasing Du's artworks at international art fairs, including the Affordable Art Fair in London.
