Gabriel Heng –

Vu Dinh Son, born 1970 in Tien  Giang in the Mekong Delta area of Southern Vietnam, is a graduate of the Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts University in 1998. Having spent a large part of his childhood in the Mekong Delta area, Son chooses to express his artwork through the lenses of simplicity and childhood memories. He adores the countryside lifestyle around the Mekong River and shares these emotions with his audience through subjects of family, nature and the interaction between the two in most, if not all of his paintings.

Son is an expressionist artist who prides himself with high standards of craftsmanship and creativity. He has participated widely in both solo and group exhibitions in Vietnam, USA, Canada, Japan and Hong Kong, and continues to explore opportunities to share his artworks with the rest of the world.

‘During my visit to Ho Chi Minh City’s LO-Entrance Gallery I was immediately drawn to two portraits by artist Vu Dinh Son. What struck me was the firm and confident glance of the two androgynous creatures as well as the combination of natural colors with a splash of exuberant red. On closer examination you discover a mixture of traditional Vietnamese painting techniques with egg shell, silver leaf and lacquer on board as well as natural dyes. It was an impulse to buy these two portraits which I have not regretted since.’
