Note: « …his mastery comes from having faced the realities of life and death as a young student in the Viet Bac and having seen a bit more of the world than most Vietnamese artists. He studied art and theatre design in Moscow for six years and had the opportunity to see art from all over the world. He taught for twenty-eight years at the Hanoi School of Fine Arts, has been a leading member of the Association of Plastic Arts Workers — most recently chairperson of its Artistic Council — and is conversant with European and American Art. In 1990 he spent two months in Paris where he had an exhibition at Vietnam House. » – Jeffrey Hantover cited in Uncorked Soul: Contemporary Art from Vietnam, p. 79
