Le Thua Tien who was born in Vietnam makes diverse works of art, including paintings, installation, experimentation with sculpture and community based art projects. Some of his most recent works are mixed media and lacquer. The direction of his paintings changed from ﬁgurative to abstract when he became artist-in-residence at Rijksacademie Van Beelden Kunsten in Amsterdam in 1995. He is one of Vietnam’s few artists who address the American War in his works. His work is also more conceptual, in comparison with many other Vietnamese artists. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Thailand, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Venezuela, Japan, and Australia. Le Thua Tien lectured at the Fine Arts University in Hue, Vietnam, from 1989 to 2008. He now lives and works in Hue.
