Nguyen Minh Phuoc
Born in 1973 in Hanoi, Nguyen Minh Phuoc graduated from the Hanoi Fine Art Institute in 1997. Inspired by his travels to Buddhist cultures, Phuoc depicts the devotion and discipline of Buddhist monks in a very appealing artistic style.

Fine intricate details on the monks and their robes and attires contrast beautifully with the hazy brushed over textures in the background. This tends to put the monks into focus as well as their journeys for the search of fulfillment.

The paintings are serene and very beautiful and exude warmth and a sense of respect and understanding of the monks' lives as well as the artist's journey into the search of higher stages of life.
