Hoang Hai Anh

Work of art Biography


Hoang Hai Anh is a respected painter in Vietnamese academic painting circles. His nudes are painted with passion in strong colors and with vigorous brush strokes of thick oil paint. Hoang Hai Anh's style has a raw intensity using art as a powerful expressive medium.

Hoang Hai Anh was born in 1970 in Hanoi, into an artistic family. From 1993 to 1998 he studied at the prestigious Hanoi Fine Arts University, where he concentrated on perfecting his techniques in lacquer and oil painting. He is now a leading figure in the “2 + 3” art group which, like the “Gang of Five” in the 1990s, represents some of the best young artists in Vietnam. Hoang Hai Anh is considered the leading figure of the group, along with Doan Hoang Lam and Le Anh Quan.
