Born and raised in Binh Phuoc province, Danh is an oil painter living and working in Ho Chi Minh City. He is pursuing the school of impressionism, which can be clearly explained in his works. He always executes plenty of colors as well as clear strokes of color in various states. In addition, light is the factor he is always concerned about. His favorite topics are landscapes and portraits. Thereby, he wants to express his feelings when standing before things, landscapes and the movement of the subject's state through color schemes and brushstrokes. Standing in front of his work, viewers are invited to feel more rather than understand the content. In 2017, he participated in two exhibitions, namely Regional VI Exhibition and Composed Camp Report 2017, both in Ho Chi Minh City. In the 2017 creation camp report exhibition, his work was awarded the 4th prize. As a freelance artist, he works independently and has sold his works to plenty of collectors. Danh was born in 1993. Since graduating from Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts in 2017, he has continued to paint to gain more experience in his own studio. Currently, he is a teacher at My Thuat Bui, Ho Chi Minh City - a non-professional painting school in Vietnam from 2017 to present.

What is your personal journey from your childhood until now?
Since childhood, I have been interested in drawing, but the situation did not allow me to study painting. When I graduated from high school, I had the opportunity to choose a career that I love, from which I decided to become an artist.
In 2011, I started coming to drawing classes and learned the first basic lessons, this was also the first difficulty I had to overcome when I came to painting quite late compared to other classmates of the same age. Then in 2012 I started to become a student at Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts. After five years of study and exposure to painting, I became more and more enthusiastic about painting, fortunately my study path was very smooth and supported by my relatives.
Why did you choose to become an artist and what does it take to become one?
When I first decided to become an artist at the age of 19, I still thought it was just a profession that helped me pursue my passion. But college helps me understand what it is like to be an artist, and it is clear that being an artist is more than just passion. To become a professional artist, following the path of painting, sticking to and succeeding in painting is a challenge for an art student. Only people who are truly passionate, serious and always try to discover and perfect themselves can truly succeed. In addition, to be able to go far with this profession, being honest with yourself when creating works of art is extremely important.
It is about the will and personality of the artist, but to achieve those things, the artist needs better living conditions to create the works. And finance is always a problem that every artist who wants to follow his career must find a solution, especially young artists.
What are the main challenges Vietnamese artists are facing?
With the arts being left behind by regions in Asia as well as around the world, all artists need to actively exchange, learn and update. Otherwise, it will fall into a rutted situation from the achievements of the Indochinese seniors. Fortunately, the internet has developed so rapidly that it is easy to learn and inherit achievements outside the country or across the continent. It is not a small challenge anymore that Vietnamese collectors have not really invested much in young artists nowadays.
There are very few art exhibitions in Vietnam and art is under regulation. What is your strategy to exhibit your work, enhance your awareness and sell your artworks?
Currently, I am trying to discover myself to get a direction for the work as well as find more opportunities to interact at exhibitions.
My own brand is building mostly online on social media, and in the next 1-2 years, I’m planning to have my solo exhibition going public. To have such a good debut event, I need to prepare carefully what I’ll bring to the viewers. I think I need to understand myself more clearly in order for my works to be always best expressed with no doubt in myself.
You recently decided to join Silapix.com and the Silapix Art Rotation Program developed by Art Consulting Asia. What is the added-value of these new concepts and what benefits do you think Vietnamese artists will withdraw from them?
I think Silapix is a very good community, which promotes communicating and introducing many artists to potential groups of people interested in art, which is always something that artists can hardly do well on their own. In addition, the Silapix community is not only in Vietnam but also in many countries around the world, this will expand the trading market as well as exchange for the Vietnamese artist community.
Who are the top 5 artists (domestic or international, deceased or alive) having the most influence on your work?
Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Francis Bacon, Andrew Salgado and Vincent Van Gogh.
