Van Tho
Winter , 2012

Oil on Canvas
60 x 80cm


Beginning his career as a social realist, Van Tho often combines traditional and modern painting aesthetics to depict solemn and figurative subjects. In 'Winter', paint is applied thickly, sculpting the man's weathered facial features. Instead of brushes, Van often works with a trowel, placing cool and warm colours side by side to create visual contrast. The bright yellow hues also evoke a feeling of warmth amidst the chilly winter setting.
