Bui Van Hoan

Bui Van Hoan was born in Hai Duong (Vietnam) in 1971. He graduated from the Hanoi College of Fine Arts in 1994 and favours oil on canvas. He is inspired by a serene and peaceful life called “Thien”, a Vietnamese form of Zen Buddhism.

Being a master of light, Bui’s paintings reveal complexities not seen at first glance. He creates layers within scenes by using light, shadow and subtle variations in hue and texture. At first there is a peaceful monochromatic scene. As one’s eyes get accustomed to the colour, the mist that shroud his paintings reveal layers and details not apparent at first sight. Objects are moving, leafs rustling and grass swaying.

Bui’s work is a blend of the East and the West – his brush strokes result in an impressionist canvas but the subject is clearly Asian in inspiration and subject matter.
Bui Van Hoan’s paintings are found in the permanent collection of the Vietnam Fine Art Museum and have been exhibited internationally in Luxembourg, London, New York, Rome, Tokyo and Singapore.
