Vietnamese art history will record Dang Xuan Hoa as one of its most important artists of the late 20th century. Not simply because of his extraordinary talent but equally as important because f his leadership and openness to change. Hoa’s paintings show both his undeniable roots in Vietnam as his exposure to and absorption of the art from many other countries and periods. In Hoa’s style one can see the influence of artists from Nguyen Tu Nghiem and Nguyen Sang to Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock yet he always remains uniquely himself. In spite of his early success Hoa has continued to take risks in his work and seems never satisfied with just staying in the same place. As must as I like his earlier paintings I always look forward to seeing the next one .
