Le Hong Thai

Blending of ancient techniques with contemporary ideas Le Hong Thai's captivating silk scroll and lacquer paintings offer fresh interpretations of tradition. Widely recognized as one of Vietnam's most talented and innovative artists, Thai combines the past and the present with skill and grace. His beautiful and technically masterful lacquer paintings take the medium of lacquer in new directions. Often abstract or with just the essence of figures, these works seek a connection through emotion.

Thai's works on silk, mounted on handmade paper scrolls, also merge past and present. These scrolls focus on a central character and captivate with their soft pallet of earth tone reds and browns. His serene figures combine moments of a soft, almost faint touch, buttressed with bold shapes of solid color.
