Pham Binh Chuong Vietnam

Chuong is among a few contemporary Vietnamese artists painting the streets of Hanoi in a realist style. His work evokes memories of the city as it was years ago.
In his work, Chuong expresses his love and nostalgia for Hanoi’s old streets.
“I was born in the Old Quarter and have a strong attachment to the old roofs, corners and people here.”
“Everyday, people may not realise its beauty because the streets are always noisy and full of tourists and shops. But before the New Year’s Eve, the street becomes silent and peaceful. I want to preserve this moment and bring people a rare angle of the street that they hardly see on the ordinary days.”
