Dinh Viet was born in 1979 in Hanoi. He dedicated himself to the technique of Lacquer painting. Unique to Vietnam, lacquer paintings imply the application of many layers of lacquer mixed with pigments, gold leaves and silver leaves.
Each layer is being polished by hand to a perfect balance where colors blend by letting the lower layers shine through. His mastery of this media give his painting an amazing shine and a very unique charm.
His delicate compositions often represent nature as an ideal place of peace and balance. His paintings are a vivid explanation of what happiness is in the Vietnamese philosophy.
