Born in 1954 in Hanoi, Binh studied at the Hanoi College of Fine Arts and then at the Gia Dinh National College of Fine Arts in Ho Chi Minh City and subjects that he captures through his camera lens, reinterpreted and reproduced in painting form with added emotions. Some of the subjects of his works include wildlife and sceneries, with some done in sketches and some done in watercolour.
His Figure Study works feature women in various poses, Nguyen immortalises their elegance and sophistication through his exploration of their movement. There is a softness in his lines displaying the tender nature of his muses.
