Nguyen Tu Nghiem -- A passionate artist (November 18, 2003)
 Standing in front of Apartment 110, on the ground floor of a block in Trung Tu residential quarter, Hanoi, I was looking up and down for the doorbell-button but found nothing at all. Seeing me as a stranger, a Japanese dog, with white and bushy hair, barked noisily. Following it was an elderly man on the wrong side of eighty, medium-statured, with a skin rarely tanned by the sun, in quite good shape. I understood at once the dog was his special bell.

Bui Xuan Phai - Uncorked Soul
Bui Xuan Phai, the man and the artist, remains a living presence in Vietnam, three years after his death from lung cancer in Hanoi at the age of sixty-seven.

Contemporary Artists - Efforts to Build and Affirm a Novel Spirit for the New Artistic Tradition
by Nguyen Xuan Tiep
Vietnamese plastic arts enjoy a time-honored tradition. Their most prominent achievements are the famous wooden statues and engravings in communal houses, pagodas, royal tombs, shrines and temples of Northern Vietnam dating back over millennia. There were also the diverse, multi-faceted arts including the well-known, brightly colored Lang Ho and Hang Trong folk paintings (Ha Bac, Hanoi); the Champa architecture which spread from Quang Tri to Binh Dinh Province and whose ideology, philosophy and religious belief were imbued with reproductive language; as well as a system of funeral houses from Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) with primitive Aboriginal, mystical and hallucinatory artistic language. These cultural and plastic arts values represent the spiritual foundation and nutrient source that has fostered the creativity of generations of Vietnamese painters.
