Born in 1959 , Dang Xuan Hoa graduated from the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 1983 . In his recent paintings , Dang Xuan Hoa remains true to himself , and objects are his main subjects. They are painted in a way to capture their relationship to the world around them . These subjects are familiar in the life of the painter . As Dang Xuan Hoa says , they can be found everywhere arounf me and in the community"


The objects appear in a kind of multi-layered perspective . Their representation is simple , almost rough . They have a sense of immediacy , directness and power . Art is for Dang Xuan Hoa , simplicity in form and substance .


As a young artist , he painted a wide varietyof still-life pieces , only gradually moving on to a figuration that has come to dominate his art . For Dang Xuan Hoa , still life offered him the opportunity to experiment , and his later portraits he has used elements and many motifs such as vases , flowers , bowls and cats , of his still life to enhance many of his best portraits and self portraits .
