Lam Duc Manh
Born: 1972
Graduated from the Hanoi Fine Arts University in 1999

Lam Duc Manh's work strikes one immediately by his attention to colour and the narrative of the alleys, the streets, the flower fields, the lakes and the ponds.

His paintings express his passion for the city, invigorated by instinctive understanding of the city's unique narrative. Lam Duc Manh's colour is lighter, less garish than is frequently found in the work of many of his contemporaries.

He is interested in the subtlety of hues, tonal variations that add significantly to highlighting the definition of his subject. With this in mind, the trees, for example, seem more delicate than one might expect, yet they remain robust in their character.
