Lot description
"Enjoying" (2009) is a stunning large-scale example of the unabashedly dynamic figurative paintings by famous emerging South-East Asian artist La Ba Quan (Vietnam,b. 1976). One of the most exciting artists of his 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, who tend to be the elders of the local villagers whose faces are full of character. This painting measures 39.37 x 31.50 inches, is in excellent condition. This work is beautifully framed (without glass or plexiglass, to slightly larger dimensions, dimensions listed are approximate). This painting is currently held in a private collection, Canada, where it was acquired in 2010 by the present owners from Empty Wall Gallery in Hanoi, Vietnam, who formally represent the artist.

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.
