Pham Hong Son was born in 1967, in the Thai Nguyen Province. Pham graduated from the Hanoi Fine Arts University in 1992 and currently lectures at his alma mater. He is also a member of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association and the Hanoi Fine Arts Association. His paintings can be found in private collections worldwide. Bamboo bridges that persistently ferry passengers across rivers in the early morning or late afternoon; people heading to distant marketplaces, the noisy steps of fish trappers, the gentle rustling of oars; the splashing sound of fishing nets rising and falling - all these fill the artist with overwhelming emotions.
Using a predominantly white background, he wishes that the interplay between heaven and earth would accentuate a world brimming with life. This vitality is rich in feelings, music, poetry and warmth. Such simplicity and coarseness highlights the intimate attachment between nature and men, as well as the relations amongst humans themselves.
