When I was young, I did not know anything about art, but every afternoon up the roof to watch the sunset. I like it because the scene is terribly beautiful. In the 6th grade, an old painter gave my sister two books, which changed my life. It is a book of Levitan and Valentin Xerop. I became infatuated with the landscape, I felt in love with the levitan's picturesque forests, the riverbank, the sunset. That same year the uncle gave out a box of dried watercolors. I just splashed in the water and drew, drawing everything I saw. At that time, there were no books and books in Cam Pha, the teaching and painting books were still rare, I only had the other 2 books as a guide. In 9th grade, luckily for me, a friend of my mother introduced me to the teacher. The person who bonded and taught me during my teenage years to college. That photographer Doan Duc. He studied with teacher Can as a miner. After going to the battlefield, he painted a lot about the Central Highlands and the mines. From there I draw. But I did not take the exam in the school of painting but studied in petrochemical science, Hai Phong University, term 04 - 08. In my second year of university, I went to the carpentry factory, paid the fee, bought color and painted, until now. I love the paintings of Rusian as: Repin, Korovan, Xerop, Levitan and Vruben. In Vietnam, I love paintings of Nguyen Gia Tri, and Nguyen Tu Nghi. There are also Foujita (Japanese) and Chagall (Russian). I follow The Expression, sometimes drawing others. I hate acrylic and love oil painting. I also like graphite and sculpture. If possible I will sculpte next time.
