Nguyễn Văn Đông is known as a portrait and children painter. He has been quite successful in Hà Nội despite only graduating from the University of Fine Arts for a few years.
Choosing oil paint and real-life drawing, Nguyễn Văn Đông creates works that are highly appreciated. The colors in his paintings are harmonious, tender, close to Vietnamese life, towards the topic of poor workers in society. He depicted a peaceful corner at noon, a piece of a yard the children playing in, or the waiting by the sprawling land under the thunderstorm. He reveals the quiet innocence of the children in an excellent composition. Watching Nguyễn Văn Đông’s paintings, we cannot avoid the feeling of love and empathy. This partly makes the viewer remember an artist who has his unique path.
