Judith Hughes Day Vietnamese Contemporary Fine Art

A blend of Eastern and Western influences distinguishes Vietnamese contemporary art. Conscious of their rich cultural heritage, Vietnamese artists incorporate the spiritual, spatial, and mythological traditions of their homeland.

Western influence dates to the time of French colonization. A classmate of Matisse, Victor Tardieu, in 1925, helped establish the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de l’Indochine in Hanoi, and Western artistic techniques and media were first introduced to Vietnamese art students. Today, Vietnamese painters acknowledge the classic academic training the Ecole and subsequent art schools provided.

A vibrant artistic community has developed, largely in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Hue, which celebrates the diversity and creativity of these painters’ work. Vietnamese artists, long recognized at home and in France, increasingly are gaining international recognition.

We exhibit work by a cross-section of the best contemporary Vietnamese artists: the most critically respected as well as emerging new talent.
