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.
Nguyen Sang – Huge and Tender

By Tran Thi Huynh Nga
 With the advent of Doi Moi (new change or renovation), Vietnamese fine art has been developing rapidly. After the end of the American War in 1975 until 1986 (when Doi Moi was implemented) the art community was stagnant partly because of a shortage of materials, but especially because of a dearth of new ideas.

The result was a tremendous gust of creativity sweeping through the country as studios and then galleries began appearing throughout the cities.

 Painters in the early stage of the 1945 August revolution were regarded as the pathfinders for Vietnam’s modern art. Most of them were honored with the Ho Chi Minh Prize, the highest distinction for Vietnamese artists.
