Viet Minh Soldier Dismounts A French Patrol Man, 2019
11" x 14"
Viet Minh Dismounts A French Officer is based on a fighting technique in Vovinam, a martial arts system devised by the artist's grandfather Nguyen Loc as a way to assemble and train Vietnamese youth to express dissent and combat French colonial and military officials in the 1930s. This painting is the initial work in a series where the artist represents Vovinam techniques in their original anti-colonial war context in order to preserve and document his grandfather’s art form.
