I graduated from College of Arts Nam Dinh at Nam Dinh province in 1999, and Hanoi University of Fine Arts in 2005 at Hanoi capital, and now I am studying Master of Fine Arts at Hanoi University of Fine Arts, Hanoi. After graduating from the Hanoi University of Fine Arts in 2005, I have been working on a series of portraits paintings "The emotion of an old man". I work with oil, lacquer, also acrylics, and in oil paintings I used oil on canvas with a palette knife.

"Many men many minds, many joys and sorrows too. The Creator gives each person a personality, and a fate. Anyone here and there has his or her own hapless things; less or more depends on a man’s characteristics and endurance. Men in a certain way can exchange segments of sufferings for entertainments, but with too many agonies inside they just keep all in themselves and considerately observe them in sad and painful silence.
From time to time numerable human faces have shown up with tears or happiness. There are some blissful laughs but people cannot conceal the past austerity and other grievous aspects. I have met many faces, from luxurious places to the end corners of many streets… Their wrinkles can show many portraits of indefinites as they are telling the world with their wordless stories that are finished only when men and women will not reserve their misery or bliss in life.
I have painted them, depicting their joyful or sorrowful conditions and trying to narrate their living stories. Beside the shadowy smoke I feel that they and I are one, and together we tell the present tales of my life."
