Lê Quý Tông

biography

Born in 1977 in Hanoi, Quy Tong graduated from the Hanoi Fine Art Institute in 2000. He is currently working as a lecturer at the Hanoi Fine Art Institute, and he is a member of the Vietnam Fine Art Association. 


Time, memory, emptiness, doubt and the act of constantly questioning the essence of things and events – these are the driving forces behind Quy Tong’s ever-expanding practice and continuous exploration into different painting media. Always dabbed with a veil of luxurious and a cold colour palette, the landscapes Quy Tong depicts never have humans in them. Here, the viewer is made lonely, confronted with symbols of a city currently going through a rapid process of modernisation and industrialisation. On the contrary, his experimentation with portraiture creates worlds that are both dreamlike and disorienting - where layers of pastel-coated shades and visual motifs both familiar and uncanny effortlessly draw us in and pull us out of reality.


He has participated in various local and international art events. His works are in the Bodnar Art Collection and Post Vidai’s Vietnam Contemporary Art Collection and various other private collections.
