Vietnamese painter’s book published in America


Two thousand copies of “Vision of War and Peace,” which features 87 paintings and sketches by a Vietnamese former soldier and visual artist, are released simultaneously in America and in Vietnam this September.

Huynh Phuong Dong’s 175-page book, which costs US$40, comprises of 109 pictures showing portraits of soldiers and guerrillas, scenes of battles and hard lives of soldiers during Vietnam War, between 1945 and 1975, and the period following peace.

Dong’s “Visions of War and Peace” is sponsored by American NGO Indochina Arts Partnership. This is the organization’s first book project to be published in America.

Dong is known for his extensive body of works: over 17,000 sketches, silk, gouache, and oil paintings, as well as wood, plaster, and bronze sculptures.
