Artist Nguyen Tan Phat | Paintings & Art Career

Artist Nguyen Tan Phat

Nguyen Tan Phat was born in 1983 in Hanoi. In 2006, he graduated from Hanoi University of Industrial Fine Arts. He is a member of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association. Nguyen Tan Phat has had a huge passion for painting since childhood. His paintings are not simple. Each of them sends a message of impermanence, about love that can ease the pain. Nguyen Tan Phat did not draw what he saw, but what he felt. The portraits in Nguyen Tan Phat’s paintings are therefore inner depth, obsessive to the viewer, full of emotion, and contain a lot of philosophy. His artworks appear in many private collections in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, France, the USA, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.
