VietNamNet – Painter Bui Quang Anh is displaying portraits of artists painted with fingers at Gallery Tu Do at No 53 Ho Tung Mau, district 1 in Ho Chi Minh City.

The collection include 24 oil and acrylic paintings. According to the painter, these pictures have been made in ‘painting mediation’ which is focused on the soul of the person in the paintings.

As using figure to paint the pictures, the painter said it took him just a short time, around 5-10 minutes with maximum of 20 minutes, to complete a work.

Painter Quang Anh said apart from musician Van Cao who passed away, all other artists, from photographer Vo An Ninh who now is 100 years old, writer To Hoai, writers Nguyen Huy Thiep, poet Hoang Cam to painter Luu Cong Nhan, have been painted from life. Most of these portraits have been created since 2003. Only the portraits of writer Tao Mat and dancer Quynh Dung were made in 1970 in a realist style.

The collection also includes some paintings featuring the status of women.

Painter Bui Quang Anh was born in 1940 in Hanoi. He was painter of the Political Department under the General Department of Logistics. After the war, he became a lecturer at the Hanoi Industrial Fine Arts College and since 1986, he has specilised in paintings.
