Artist Name

Chau Huyen Thai Le

Hometown: Hanoi

Based in: Hanoi

With an academic background in International Communication and Diplomacy from Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam and no formal art training whatsoever, Chau Le Thai Huyen is not your average artist in more ways than one. Equipped with nothing more than an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Sketchbook, this emerging digital painter who was born and raised in Hanoi describes her style as “impulsive and like a naive child with contrasting and harmonious colors and bold composition.” Her subject matter is intimate with her works seen as a raw reflection of her journey through the different stages of growth and emotions felt within scenes of her everyday life as a citizen of Vietnam.

Though only a few years into her journey as an artist, Chau Le has already been making colorful waves both inside Vietnam and abroad. Her artwork has been shown in group exhibitions in Tokyo, Seoul, London and Milan, and was recently featured on Artcast for streaming service.
