Book: Nguyen Thanh Binh – The strange attraction of the color white

Category: Artists, Individual

Unit Price: US$55.00

Description: “I like things that are simple, the color induces a simple composition and design. I don’t like paintings with a lot of color. This is not my way,” says Binh. “In life, there are many problems and every Vietnamese has a sadness within them. We have seen so many wars over a long time, I want to express this in my painting, the sorrow of the Vietnamese soul.”
