    Nguyen Lam was born in 1941 in Can Tho and graduated from National School of Fine Arts Saigon in 1965. Before 1975 he was a professor of the Nation School of Decoration and Fine Arts, Gia Dinh. 


    Nguyen Lam is well known for his abstract artworks spanning over decades. His subjects are modern, however there is a link between the old and the new seen in his technique: Nguyen Lam uses big brushstrokes of black paint inspired by the traditional technique of calligraphy. Each stroke is precise, coming out of a meditation to be perfect. 


    Nguyen Lam received numerous  prizes and awards for his works spanning from 1962.  His exhibitions between 1962 and 1975 were highly regarded. Since then, his work was exhibited around the world, many times around Europe, America and Asia.  Nguyen Lam's paintings appear in permanent collections of the Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts, Ho Chi Minh City Museum of Fine Arts and several private collections in Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and most of all in the US, where some collectors have been following him from his early years.
