Nguyen Trong Tai was born 1978 in the Thai Nguyen Province located in the Northeastern region of Vietnam. He graduated in 2004 from Hanoi Fine Art University.
Tai is deeply fascinated with the expression of the varying states of emotions through dance movements, and in particular those from ballerinas. In his eyes, these movements of emotions are honest, truthful and far more representative of the moment than words can achieve. He has since devoted much time studying the techniques and movement of ballet, observing ballerinas at practice and also when they are performing on stage. The increasing recognition of Tai’s artworks by collectors is an acknowledgement of Tai’s keen ability to translate emotional details of the performing art in paintings.
Tai has held several group exhibitions in Vietnam, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
