I met with Dien on my most recent trip to Vietnam.  Not only is he an exceptional painter but also a fabulous individual.<br />

"The Asians believe that the circle is the symbol of nature. It spins continuously and resembles the four seasons that come and go each year. The round canopies of leaves in my paintings show that I adore nature's beauty the way it is. When I look at a canopy of leaves, I feel strength in it.  Someday it will suddenly bloom and disappear into thin air.  There will be flowers with their wonderful scent and there will be a future."<br />

Dien joined us in Tokyo in November, 2008 for a special exhibition of his works

Vu Cong Dien

Vu Cong Dien was born in 1975 and graduated from the Hanoi Fine Arts University in 2005. He has only been on the professional scene for a few years yet his works are already in high demand in Europe, Australia, the US and Japan. Dien brings a fresh approach to his landscapes often using color in unusual combinations. At other times, he uses mono and dichromatic color schemes to achieve a sense of tranquility and peace.

Dien's works were extremely well received at his exhibition in Dubai as well as at his exhibition here in Tokyo and are quite difficult to come by since he takes time to paint with meticulous attention to detail. We feel privileged to have been the first gallery outside of Vietnam to feature his works and enjoyed introducing him in person to the Tokyo community in November 2008 when he was a featured artist at "Through Their Eyes"benefit exhibition at Shinsei Bank. His works are currently being carried in galleries in Singapore, London, Dubai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Finland, Belgium and Hanoi.
