Dang Xuan Hoa

artist's profile



Distinguished early among the young artist, even prior to 1990, Dang Xuan Hoa is a qualified painter. Endowed with the abilities of Nam Dinh men of letters, he has the flair when observing separate figures and the entire structure and is apt to express emotions through figures and shapes. Hence his paintings always have a proper ending; while drawing, he can stop in whatever place of the picture at will, since the compositions appear to be constantly perfect in themselves. As for the harmony of colours, it has a surface appeal with very subtle aesthetic feelings. There arise in his paintings sadness – evoking feelings from a plastic art tendency that apparently wants to tell and conceal everything in the same instant. In his portraits, he wishes to beautify the accommodating beauty of each character as well as to evoke the deformity of each human fate. In others he made use of different motifs such as fish, eats, Buddhist streamers, ceramics, grass and flowers, human figures … They vary multidimentionally on a quite flat surface, only the series of colours undergo some changes to create an illusion of a dimensional relief.
