Dang Phuong Viet paints lotus, the symbol of beauty, purity and regeneration, in his unique modern style. The artist's daring use of a broad 'symphony of colours', ranging from acid greens to shocking fuchsia and burning red, is expertly harmonious. The viewer sees beyond the real beauty of the lotus and wanders into the world of imagination.
Being a Buddhist, Viet's paintings are associated with the enlightenment. He states, “Buddha is likened to the lotus. Like a lotus that rises from a muddy pond, Buddha rose above the defilement and sufferings of life”.
