Working on the battlefields between 1969–1975 as a reporter for Lao Dong newspaper, Chu Thao was also prolific in making sketches and paintings about the revolutionary war. With works made primarily from watercolor, graphite, and crayon, the artist was recognized for his portraits of soldiers and civilians, and his war sketches have been printed in an array of local art magazines. His work is included in the collections of the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum, the Ho Chi Minh City Museum of Fine Arts, and the War Remnants Museum.
