Nguyễn Tuấn Cường
Born in 1978 in Hanoi and graduated from Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Arts in 2001, Nguyễn Tuấn Cường is known as one of the most respected contemporary lacquer painters in Vietnam today who thoroughly practice on this traditional medium. His poetic still- life lacquer paintings tell viewers a subtle relation between the object and its surrounding space; yet depict an obscure reflection of time flows.
Cường currently works as a lecturer at the Art & Craft College of Vietnam where he plays a very important role in the development of the college’s Lacquer training programme.
Nguyễn Tuấn Cường has participated in a wide range of exhibitions in Vietnam and overseas ie France, UK, Taiwan, China, Switzerland. He now lives and works in Hà Đông, Hà Nội
