Doan Hoang Lam

Doãn Hoàng Lâm (b. 1970, Hanoi, Vietnam) graduated in Cinematography from the Fine Arts Faculty, Hanoi in 1993 and in painting from Vietnam’s Find Art University in 1999. His body of work reflects the artist’s complex layers of emotions. With a dark palette, aggressive brushstrokes, and distorted forms, Doãn Hoàng Lâm paints processions of earthly flesh writhing about in pain, filled with fears and insecurities. His works have been exhibited in Vietnam, Thailand, Unites States and Taiwan and were also features in the book “Vietnam Eye – Contemporary Vietnamese” published by Global Eye Programme in 2016. He was first introduced to American audience in his private show Shades of Times at IMAGallery in May 2015.
