Phuong's (b. 1956) impressionistic paintings convey his deep
affection for the ancient streets of his hometown, Hanoi, as
well as his love of nature. A self-taught artist, Bui Thanh
Phuong continues to sketch and then paint Hanoi's Old
Quarter, reinforcing and celebrating his memories of the
grace and beauty of this grand old city, against its
inevitable modern development.
