Family name = Do
Born in 1937 in Hanoi
Graduated from Hanoi Fine Arts University in 1961.
He was a student of Nguyen Gia Tri, the master of Vietnamese Paintings in 19th century. He attended the drawing-course at Hanoi Fine Arts University, in the same promotion with well-known artists such as Hoang Sung, Dinh Trong khang, Nguyen The Vinh, Tran Huy Oanh, Dang Duc Sinh, Nguyen Hai, and under the supervision  of Tran Van Can who was the director of the Hanoi Fine Arts University from 1954 to 1964.

Xuan Doan's works are inspired by all thing in nature, especially daily life with ancient houses, old streets and common people. His paintings are cheerful, contain his feelings and life experiences, particularly his time in Hanoi, showing a real love for Hanoians and their life, as for example his painting called Cafe Hanoi - The Memory of 1972, which portrays two elderly persons drinking coffee. The use of vibrant colors and both brushstrokes make each of Xuan Doan’s canvases come alive with a shimmering life of its own.

Biography from a third party submitted on 05/12/2007:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Do Xuan Doan, a Vietnamese specialist in lacquer paintings, was born in Hanoi in 1937.  He studied at Ecole des Beaux Arts de Hanoi and graduated in 1961.  Following in the steps of other Vietnamese master artists, To Ngoc Van, Phan Ke An, and Nguyen Gia Tri, he joined the army, and although Do Xuan Doan continued to paint, he did not retain any works from this period.

In 1985, as conditions in his life began to improve, Do Xuan Doan was able to begin to paint again for his personal satisfaction and passion for art.  As the artistic revival of the 1990's began in Vietnam, he quickly rose to the forefront of the milieu and is now the leader of a new generation of Vietnamese artists, working in more creative, vivid, forms and colors.

Do Xuan Doan is a romanticist with a sense of humor.  The inspiration for his paintings comes from the depths of his heart and soul.  He enjoys traveling throughout Vietnam, north to south, mainland to highland, and to urban and rural areas, to capture the essence of daily life and the beautiful landscape of his country.

At over 70 years of age, Do Xuan Doan continues to paint with his unique style and vibrant color palette, creating works of beauty for himself, art lovers, and life.  His works have been internationally exhibited, and can be found in collections in the United States, France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Hong Kong, Germany, Singapore, Japan, England, Indonesia, Austrailia, and Canada. 

Do Xuan Doan states, "Painting is my greatest passion and my destiny is to live and die by the brush."
