Work in ink

Pham Luc’s ink works, painted on locally available materials such as silk, rice sacks, newsprint, and rice paper, are of inestimable historical value. Made between 1965 and 1975, a series of drawings in ink on rice paper represent the soldiers, Vietnamese peasants, and women during the war, mostly passive witnesses of a conflict for unity and independence.

Oils and other techniques

Pham Luc mastered many traditional techniques: from lacquer (he is an undisputed master in Vietnam), watercolor, oil, woodcarving, and gouache to acrylic.

A book that compares him with Picasso is dedicated to him.
