Though Pham Hoang Anh was born and brought up in the northern port city of Hai Phong, the artist seems to have a deeper impression of Hue and its culture, which can be easily seen in his oil paintings. The works of the lecturer of the College of Fine Arts in Hue depict gent Buddhist nuns and lasses whose faces show different states of spirits. Anh says his works are about what he has seen and felt about the peacefulness of pagodas, royal tombs, the spiritual life, and the calmness of people in the former imperial city. It is no coincidence that Anh uses red and other hot colors in most of his paintings, as they are an expression of his great desire for finding a typical style that reflects his calm but enthusiastic character. Anh manages to make the most of his experience in embroidery and decoration for his paintings to make them look more vivid and harmonious between the landscape and people in the city the artist has been living in for more than 10 years. Anh started to study painting at the age of 28 in response to the encouragement of his uncle after years of doing different jobs in his birthplace and elsewhere. But, his talent was exposed quickly and the group exhibitions with his classmates in Hue and Danang were a typical example. Hoang Anh had his paintings displayed with other artists in Thailand one year after he received a diploma with honor from the College of Fine Arts in Hue. His works have since gone beyond Thailand to Japan, France, Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong. On the home front, Hoang Anh has had his works exhibited and kept at galleries and hotels from the north to the south. The 39-year-old artist has also scooped a score of awards in Vietnam and abroad. Asked about his future dream, Hoang Anh says he will continue finding new sources of inspiration to create work that catches the eyes and soul of viewers. 1967 Born in Hai Phong 1998 Graduated from University of Fine Arts Hue.
