I have bought a few pieces from Mr Long. He is among the best art curators in Hanoi. I love his galleries (he has a larger one near the Politechnic University (Dai Hoc Bach Khoa). He has good eyes to pick emerging talented young artists. His art is not decorative but the real art, with a lot of soul in it. Strongly recommend.
Dong Phong Gallery is for art lovers: it is genuine, original and across boundaries.
The owner, Mr. Pho Duc Long, is one of the pioneers of the fine art in Hanoi. In 1992, Mr. Long opened the first private art gallery in Hanoi and ever since, Vietnamese artists have benefitted from his wise and kind patronage. Many well-know artists have started their careers with Dong Phong Gallery and Mr. Long continues to promote young artists and older masters at home and abroad.
Mr. Long has a large network among Vietnamese artists. Though the gallery appears small, there is much, much more than meets the eye: a large off-site collection and access to many artists' studios.
I have known Mr. Long for more than 8 years and I am a regular customer in the gallery where I have bought more than 15 works of art. I am a friend of the family and over the years we have sat together for many conversations and happy moments.
I am delighted to give my warmest praise to Dong Phong Gallery for its expertise, its dedication to fine arts and its sense of new.
Mr. Long and his niece, Ms. Mai, are in the gallery daily.
Oh, and please try their excellent iPad App - it shows the capabilities of the gallery.
