Hanoi Street, by Bui Xhan Phai
Oil on canvas
Salazar says it's time to introduce a Vietnamese artist into SIA. I AGREE. And who better than Bui Xhan Phai, one of the most famous Vietnamese painters? Phai is well known in the art world for his paintings of Hanoi, and he's also known as a figurehead for freedom in Vietnam; he lost his job and was only allowed to leave Vietnam once because he supported a North Vietnam political movement supporting artistic and cultural freedom in the country. Although he didn't receive a significant amount of attention outside the country in his lifetime, Phai is posthumously known as one of the most important artists in the history of Vietnam.
Send your outfits to Salazar by Monday, December 16th! (I'm excited because that is also my GRADUATION DAY.) I can't wait to see the outfits, this is a good piece!
