ARTISTS
Nguyen NGOC ANH ( b.1980, Vietnam )

Born in 1980 and a native of Than Hoa, Northern Vietnam, oil painter Ngoc Anh discovered a deep passion for art at a young age and ambitiously pursued it through books and magazines to enhance his knowledge. He later attended the Central College of Music and Art in Vietnam in 2002 and has been actively painting ever since. Not completely satiated with his art education thus far, Nguyen wanted to hone his technical skills further and is currently studying at the prestigious Hanoi University of Fine Arts. He will graduate in 2013. Ubiquitous in Vietnam, the "bicycle" is a favourite subject–matter of the artist, which Nguyen repeatedly paints in several of his canvases. It is symbolic of a country when "daily life was simpler and human relationships warmer". Nguyen wants to paint with feeling and emotion, of nostalgic scenes of his country, from his own personal perspective.
