About me

“I always see the beauty of the surroundings”

Dao Hai Phong was born in 1965, the son of the well-known artist Dao Duc, he studied at the Ha No college of Film and theatre from 1982 – 1987 and won a medal as designer at the Vietnam Film Festival for his contribution to this museum.

In 1987, Phong graduated from the College of Drama and Cinematography, where he <a href=””>buy essay here</a> studied in the Art Film Design Department. Although he had painted as a baby from the age of six, it was only after graduation that Phong started to focus on developing his individual style.

Phong likes to use blue and other luminous, radiating colors. Most of his paintings are landscapes inspired by his travels when working on films. Although he was born and grew up in the city of Hanoi, he has recently been drawn more and more to the beauty of the countryside.

In 1992 – 1993 he changed his ideal about color and began incorporating the use of softer colors such as grey with the vivid blue. Phong admires other artists such as Le Thiet Cuong and Truong Tan, however he believes that each artist is like a tree in a forest – each tree must have its own style.

Since 1992 he has held the position of Chief Designer of the Vietnam Film Studio, but in the meantime has continued to paint and exhibit his work.
