Le Pho

"Home is where the art is for lamented Le Pho" by Le Thanh Tru

Le Pho, one of the first graduates of the French-built Indochina Fine Arts College, died in mid-December last year in France at the age of 94; yet for all his decades abroad, he never forgot his birthplace and one can be sure his soul seeks it still.

From his earliest days, Le Pho nurtured a deep passion for painting. When opportunities were wanting, he made his own: from imitating pictures and photos to drawing back for a small local photographic shop.
