Dao Anh Khanh


  • Birth Date and Place: 1959, Hanoi, Vietnam

  • Graduated from the Hanoi Industrial Arts Academy, 1990.
  • Member of Vietnam Fine Arts Association

Of all the people I’ve met in my life, Anh Khanh is one of the most interesting, outside of any box people I’ve met.

– Tom Linzmeier, owner, Two Tigers Gallery

Dao Anh Khanh, a surrealist, is an internationally recognized leader among Asian artists who are breaking away from traditional, stylistic, and political constraints. His mind knows no limits, escaping to the outer reaches of the universe in search of tranquility, and finding explosions of renewed personal energy on the way. He is the consummate romanticist, hearing musical instruments and enchanting strains even in the most violent windstorms or disturbances at sea. Dao Anh Khanh is an avowed environmentalist, sculptor, performing artist, musician and painter. His paintings are in lacquer on canvas as well as lacquer on wood.
