Dang Phuong Viet

Born in Vietnam, Hanoi, 1972

Biography

Phuong Viet studied in Hanoi Fine Arts and graduated with a high distinction. His works are mainly oil on canvas in the language of modern realism. His favourite theme is lotus and banana flowers. His lotus works are emotional expression of nature while his banana flowers express intuitive synergy of vibrant hues.

Departing from the traditional depictions of lotus as symbols of beauty, resilience and enlightenment, he updates them into a modern team. He uses a seeming cacophony of colors – ranging from acid greens to shocking fuchsias and fire engine red. Even though Dang’s choice of colors is challenging, he manages to combine them in a harmonious medley that is surprisingly pleasing and elates the senses with a jolt of cheer. The bright colors reflect the happiness evoked by the symbolism of the lotus flower. The lotus flower grows resplendantly even in muddy waters and is a reflection to lead life being true and strong to oneself despite adversity.

Dang has participated in many exhibitions and won several prestigious awards, distinctively the ASEAN Fine Arts award in 2001.
