Nguyễn Quang Huy
Born in 1971 in Ha Tay, Huy completed his studies at the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 1996. He is considered one of the pioneers of Vietnamese experimental and contemporary art. Well-known for his blue, large-scale portraits of women and video installations which are dedicated to the life of the working-class, Huy recently took a more abstract path. The images in his paintings now seem to oscillate between shattered dreams while appearing intriguing and magnificent at the same time.
Huy has had solo exhibitions in Vietnam, Germany, France, and Singapore, and participated in numerous international group exhibitions in Japan, the US, Finland, Thailand, China, Australia, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. His works are included in the permanent collection of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan; the World Bank Art Program, and the Post Vidai Collection of Contemporary Vietnamese Art.
