Le Hoang Bich Phuong © Le Hoang Bich Phuong Trained in the art of silk and oil painting at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University, Lê Hoàng Bích Phượng often humorously explores the experience of living in a society where one has to wear a kind of disguise in society, hiding their true self within. Working between silk, ceramic, oil and installation, Phuong’s art is in part inspired by her 2011 residency in Japan, evident in her soft brushstrokes and ethereal use of color that is reminiscent of Japanese silk artist Utagawa and the contemporary paintings of Yoshimoto Nara.
