About the artwork

Notable for his large-scale lacquer and oil paintings, Van Tho combines traditional and modern painting aesthetics, employing crisp lines, bold contrasting colours and abstract forms. Alone yet dignified, Van’s figures are typically the focus of each work. Starting out as a social realist painter, Van positions his figures in ambiguous settings, further lending them an air of humble mystique.
