Lot description
"Drinker" (2011) is a dynamic example of the figurative oil paintings by Contemporary South-East Asian artist, La Ba Quan, (Vietnam, b. 1976). One of the most exciting artists of his late 1970's generation, the artist first began his series of exaggerated portraits of the older generation from his native Vietnam in 2005. The artist's iconic use of the palette knife and thick application of paint to canvas underscore the intense emotions and life-story of his sitters. "The Drinker" measures 32 x 24 inches, is unframed and in excellent condition.

La Ba Quan was born in Nam Dinh City, Vietnam and received his Undergraduate Degree from the College of Arts- Nam Dinh Vietnam, and his Masters of Fine Arts Degree from Hanoi University of Fine Arts, Hanoi Vietnam. The artist has exhibited throughout the United States, the united Kingdom, The Netherlands, Israel, as well as throughout Asia. La Ba Quan lives and works in Vietnam.
