Le Hoang Bich Phuong

Le Hoang Bich Phuong is one of Vietnam’s most promising young artists whose study of Vietnamese and Japanese silk painting traditions has greatly influenced her own unique style and technique. Influenced by the ukiyo-e tradition, while also drawn to the popular world of the comic, her strong command of line and color creates an ethereal, near surreal presence. A graduate of the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University, she was awarded an artist-in-residence in Sapporo, Japan, as part of the ‘JENESYS Program: Invitation Program for Creators’ of the Japan Foundation in 2011 and that same year was also one of the finalists for the DOGMA Art Prize in self-portraiture. In 2010 she was finalist in the ‘Talent Prize’ of the Cultural Development and Exchange Fund. Recent exhibitions include ‘Sapporo Biennale 2011’, Sapporo, Japan, 2011; ‘Shaping a line’, Sàn Art, 2011; ‘Saigon Contemporary’, La Lanta Fine Art Gallery, Bangkok, Thailand, 2011. (sàn art)
