was born in Hanoi in 1957 . He graduated from the Hanoi Fine Arts University in 1975 and began his study of traditional lacquer techniques after graduation. In 1986 , he established the Nha Son Studio in Hanoi . The studio, located in a traditional wooden house on stilts, is home to a number of young lacquer artists who share the work space while developing their own styles.

Hung’s works are varied but center around a common theme of recollection. He believes that new events, impressions and knowledge are built upon life’s historical foundations. He strives to preserve the past by blending it with present day elements so that ” it does not become reduced to lifeless words without visual detail .”

Hung’s works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout Asia, Europe and the United States . His works are in the permanent collections of the Orient Museum of Russia , the Singapore Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum in Melbourne . ” If a picture is worth a thousand words , Bui Huu Hung’s haunting paintings tell a hundred stories .” ( Heritage Magazine , August 1998 .)
