Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Lebadang (Hoi) was born in Quang Tri, Vietnam in 1922.  He moved to France in 1939 to pursue an art career at Ecole de Beaus Arts de Toulouse.  While studying there he was awarded prizes for painting, drawing, and sculpture and won his first commission.

By 1950 the Paris art community had recognized Lebadang's work, appreciating the blend of European and Far Eastern culture and philosophies reflected in it. The director of the Far Eastern Department at UNESCO commissioned him to illustrate a book of poetry, published by Editions Euros.

Lebadang was first represented in the United States, in 1966, with an exhibition of his paintings at the Cincinnati Art Museum. In describing his art today critics remark that it incorporates everyday subjects into dream-like expressions of thought. Lebadang, an accomplished printmaker, favors the techniques of etching, lithograph, and serigraph.  He also has done lithographs using the name Hoi.

Lebadang's work is exhibited in Dusseldorf, Paris, Nantes, Cologne, Cannes and Aix en Provence galleries. His work is owned in permanent private and public collections including: Rockefeller Collection, New York; Loo Collection in Tokyo; Verkerke Collection, Holland; Phoenix Art Museum, USA; Cincinnati Museum, USA; Columbia Art Institute, USA; Lund University Museum, Sweden; Foundation Museum, Kenya; and the Museum of Arts and Letters, France.

Hoi Lebadang, Vietnamese (1922- )

Lebadang was born in Vietnam and emigrated to France in 1939 to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse. He had his first one-man show in Paris in 1950, and over the next thirty years gained prominence throughout France and Germany. He came to the attention of Americans in 1966 when the Cincinnati Art Museum hosted the first one-man exhibition of his paintings in the United States.

Lebadang fuses the cultural influence of Europe and the Orient in his poetic visions articulated in watercolor, sculpture and lithography. He is recognized for the grace and simplicity of his imagery, executed in infinite variations of line, shape and color.

Over the next three decades there were many important exhibits of his works throughout France and Germany. Lebadang came to the attention of Americans in 1966 when the Cincinnati Art Museum hosted the first one-man exhibition of his paintings in the United States.
