LE ANH CAN
Le Anh Can was born in 1985 in Vietnam. Although currently living and working in Ho Chi Minh City, Le Anh Can graduated from the University of Hue in the lacquer painting faculty. His work has been widely recognized and in 2008 he was one of 10 artists granted sponsorship by the Australian Consulate.
Stylistically, Le Anh Can’s talents are wide ranging. He creates beautiful impressionist landscapes using the palette knife, which highlight Vietnams freshness and radiance. His paintings are characteristically Vietnamese, emphasized more so by his use of bright colours, and subject matter. There is generally a limited palette used within each piece of work, simplifying the subject to its bare essentials.
Le Anh Can’s work can be defined as traditional with an exciting contemporary edge.
