Truong Din Hao was born in Hanoi in 1937 and currently lives and works in the province of Ha Bac in the northern part of Vietnam. A native of Hanoi, he graduated from the Hanoi School of Fine Arts in the 1960’s. This talented artist has been celebrated for his unique child-like gouaches of buffaloes, rendered with bold strokes and vibrant colours on textured paper. He is also known for his paintings of folkloric scenes, many with striking colours. He didn’t start painting again until 1982 when he had the time to do so, and didn’t start selling his work until 1986. Since then, he has been exhibiting in Hanoi and Saigon and had his works on permanent display at the National Fine Arts Museum. He spent part of 1997 exhibiting his work in France and completed a successful show in Singapore.
