ABOUT

Lê Hoàng Bích Phượng (b.1984, Ho Chi Minh City) is one of Vietnam’s most promising young artists whose study of Vietnamese and Japanese silk painting traditions has greatly influenced her own unique style and technique. Influenced by the ukiyo-e tradition, while also drawn to the popular world of the comic, her strong command of line and color creates an ethereal, near surreal presence. A graduate of the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University, she was awarded an artist-in-residence in Sapporo, Japan, as part of the ‘JENESYS Program: Invitation Program for Creators’ of the Japan Foundation in 2011 and that same year was also one of the finalists for the DOGMA Art Prize in self-portraiture. In 2010 she was finalist in the ‘Talent Prize’ of the Cultural Development and Exchange Fund. Recent exhibitions include ‘Chain’ (solo), The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, Ho Chi Minh City, 2017; ‘Bittersweet Whispers’, Salon Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2016); ’White, Black & Gold’ (solo), Japan Foundation, Hanoi, Vietnam (2015), ‘Above Under Sky’, Manzi Art Space, Hanoi, Vietnam (2014); ’Peonia Dream’ (solo), Phuong My Boutique, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2013); ‘A transformative disguise’ (solo), San Art, Ho Chi Minh City, and Japan Foundation, Hanoi, Vietnam (2012)
