Lecture by Pipo Nguyen-Duy

It was a joy to listen to Pipo talk. He was enthusiastic, down to earth and had a great personality. Current project that Pipo is working on include The Garden, East of Eden, and The Presidential Palace. I think that his work is beautiful to look at.
He has done various types of work that range from playful performances to more serious portraits of the people of Vietnam.

The conversation about romanticism was quite lovely. It was refreshing to hear this dialogue between Bill Jenkins, Betsy Schneider and Pipo Nguyen-Duy. Some people were taught to reject romanticism, Pipo looks at classical romantic era paintings with awing eyes and showed many slides of these paintings, which I found very intriguing. This one below for example, by Caspar David Friedrich.
