Meet Artist Bui Huu Hung
A journey to remember
Bui Huu Hung is one of the most renowned, respected and important contemporary artists in Vietnam. He is also the most original – the undisputed master of the challengingly complex and mysterious art of lacquer painting. He has taken an ancient Vietnamese craft and technique and breathed new life into it, producing works of astonishing refinement, understated elegance and timeless beauty.
Ms Loan sponsored Hung’s very first exhibition at her immaculately restored French colonial villa. “His style was very different,” Ms Loan says “I still have two of his paintings from this era - they are priceless because no one has them – and his current works are just as beautiful.”
