The paintings of Chinese-Vietnamese Minh have impressed viewers. He uses traditional Chinese ink techniques to portray Vietnamese objects and convey messages about life and love.

Minh was born in Chợ Lớn (Big Market) in HCM City’s District 5. He began his career in 1958 and has exhibited at 50 solo and group exhibitions in Vietnam as well as in France, the US, China, Japan and Australia.

 

He has sent 200 of his paintings to auctions for charity work for poor and disabled children.
