Bui, Xuan Phai 1920-1988
Born in Ha Dong, Xuan Phai Bui spent the majority of his life in Vietnam, rarely traveling. He studied at the Fine Arts College of Indochina. As a result of his participation in Anti-French resistance movements, and the avant-garde style he painted in, Bui was not able to exhibit his works until 1984. His work was not appreciated during his lifetime but has gained recognition in recent years. Xuan Phai Bui has become a well-recognized Vietnamese artist and collectors are increasingly seeking his work. His works can be found in the collection of the Fine Arts Museum of Vietnam.
