There is a self-confident Luu Cong Nhan and there is another Luu Cong Nhan tormented by gnawing doubts. “The path I’m following is absolutely right, art is not supposed to be repetitive”. “Sometimes, in retrospection, I find that everything I’ve created during the last thirty years is just worth dumping into the refuse bin”.

There is a Luu Cong Nhan, foot-loose and fancy-free stroller who wanders on every path of creation, experimenting every form of expression, exploring every field from Dong Ho prints, Chinese – style painting to expressionism, fauvism, abstractionism.
