BUI CONG KHANHb. 1972, Danang, Vietnam. Lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Bui Cong Khanh’s work explores historical and contemporary issues in Vietnam. As one of the first local artist to gain international recognition during the 1990s, Khanh embraces painting and sculpture to express his fascination with the complex history of Vietnam. More recently, his works, such as the blue and white porcelain vases and the portrait of himself and Buddha, are reflective of the dichotomy of his fast changing nation. Deeply philosophical and reactive to the world around him, Khanh is one of Vietnam’s most intriguing young artists.
