About the artist:
Hoi Lebadang (1921-2015) b. Vietnam.
Lebadang moved to France in 1939 to pursue an art career at Ecole de Beaus Arts de Toulouse.
By 1950 the Paris art community began to recognize Lebadang’s work. It was during this time that the director of the Far Eastern Department at UNESCO commissioned the Vietnamese born artist to illustrate a book of poetry, published by Editions Euros.
Lebadang was first represented in the United States, in 1966, with an exhibition of his paintings at the Cincinnati Art Museum. In describing his art today critics remark that it incorporates everyday subjects into dream-like expressions of thought. Lebadang, an accomplished printmaker, favors the techniques of etching, lithograph, and serigraph.
Lebadang’s work is exhibited in Dusseldorf, Paris, Nantes, Cologne, Cannes and Aix en Provence galleries. His work is owned in permanent private and public collections including: Rockefeller Collection, New York; Loo Collection in Tokyo; Verkerke Collection, Holland; Phoenix Art Museum, USA; Cincinnati Museum, USA; Columbia Art Institute, USA; Lund University Museum, Sweden; Foundation Museum, Kenya; and the Museum of Arts and Letters, France.
