Pham Quốc Hùng was born 1966 in Huế, a city with a rich artistic history and once the capital of Vietnam Dynasty. He studied art at the Huế Fine Arts University where he graduated in 1992. Immediately after graduation, Hùng began showing his work in a number of exhibits while his wife, Anh, managed a gallery in the old town section of Hoi An.
Hùng loved art since he was a young boy, enjoying many of the artists hanging in galleries around Hue as a child. Early teachers held back his aspirations saying that [he] would never have the skills to become an artist. Hùng persevered, developing his own unique style, and was finally recognized by a professor at the Huế Fine Arts University.
Working in a variety of mediums including oil painting, woodblock, and traditional Vietnamese silk paintings, Hùng's work is today found in numerous private collections throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States.
We were introduced to Pham Quốc Hùng's work in 2014 at the Tudo Art Gallery in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
