Nguyen Thanh Binh derives inspiration from poetry, where few words can have substantial impact. For the casual observer Binh’s paintings portray a poetic simplicity. However, Binh endured significant trials of both mind and body and his art represents a refuge that is deeply influenced by his experiences.
“I use oils and canvas that originate from the west and combine them with my eastern eyes, hands and mind to create paintings. My art may appear simple, but my mind is brimming with memories, feelings and passion and each work quietly resonates from my soul.”
Nguyen Thanh Binh is world renowned and his works is recognized as part of the finest contemporary Vietnamese art.
