Nguyen Minh Thanh

Nguyen Minh Thanh (b. 1971, Vietnam) graduated from Vietnam University of Fine Arts in 1996 and is part of a small group of experimental artists who were at the forefront of the development of Vietnamese contemporary art during the 1990s-2000s. His works have meditative and introspective qualities and engage with Vietnamese life and culture. Inspired by Buddhism and mainly using Chinese ink and watercolor on Do paper, Minh Thanh’s portraits are the result of an internal search for harmony and peace. He stated, “I believe that inside each of us, there is authentic and perfect beauty…, that beneath our mind there is peace and from there, everything will begin.” Minh Thanh’s work has been widely exhibited both nationally and internationally, and is included in numerous public and private collections, including the National Art Gallery of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan, the World Bank Art Program etc.
