Twelve Portraits in Oil on Canvas by Le Quang Ha

About

A series of abstract portraits in oil on canvas by Le Quang Ha, Vietnam, works dating from 1997 to 2004. Each work is approximately 20.25 x 16.5" framed - Le Quang Ha was born in Hanoi in 1963 and graduated from the Hanoi Industrial College of Fine Arts in 1992. Le Quang Ha avoids traditional, academic subjects in his art, and instead chooses to address issues that many artists prefer to overlook or even ignore in their work. There is much vitality, meaning, and social critique in the brutal honesty of his art. With its ironic comments, his art addresses subjects, which the young generations of Vietnam are confronted with. The works present a sophisticated discourse on the clashes between tradition and the modern values of contemporary Vietnam. In Vietnam, his art is still regarded as an outburst within the official and social framework. Nevertheless, it is the very controversy that he arouses which has become the leading indicator of the importance of his art. Le Quang Ha has participated in several exhibitions in Vietnam. He has also taken part in shows in Germany (1992, 1996, 1997), China (1993), Switzerland (1996, 2001, 2004), Hong Kong (1997), Japan (1998), USA (1998, 1999, 2006), Korea (1999), Indonesia (2001), and Great Britain (2005).. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan and the Singapore Art Museum.
