Hoang Hai Anh is one of Vietnam's leading contemporary artist. With raw intensity and powerful strokes, his works are reflections of his impassioned view on life. He uses thick impasto in vigorous strokes while employing contrasting color tones to convey his artistic expression in an original, disturbing yet beautiful works.
Along with his themes which ranges from nudes, still-life, and self-portraits as seen here; his technique, composition and the strong expressive power of his strokes are reminiscent of the Austrian Expressionism in the early twentieth century.
