Tran Duy: a talented and prudent painter (Januray 27, 2005)

Yen Phu street in Autumn.
Tran Duy is considered a very prudent painter. He spends several months to finish a silk painting. He is organising his second individual silk painting exhibition early this year at the age of over 80.

Born in 1920, Tran Duy is one of the oldest painters of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association. Tran Duy has left the city to live in the countryside in recent years. At the age of 80, Tran Duy still has a great passion for the art as he was student of the Indochina Fine Arts College half a century ago. He has spent a lot of time for the old beauty of a communal house and a peaceful pagoda. For example, it took him some months to draft the gate of Uoc Le village from different angles.

Yen Phu street in Summer.
According to painter Tran Duy, those who collect paintings must have money, but for those who love paintings, must be soulful. For years, he has pursued the art with an extreme carefulness that other people can’t understand. He paints carefully every small details in his paintings, from a leaf, a blade of grass to a flower bud.

For ten years now, he has his second painting exhibition. Forty large size silk paintings on display featuring trees and landscape is an evidence for the painter’s carefulness and respectful talent.
