Dong Dieu Vietnam
About the Artist
Duong Dieu was born on the Vietnamese tropical paradise island of Phu Quoc. Part of a family in which the artistic flair runs deep (he is the older brother of fellow Art Sumo painter, Duong Kha Trung), he always had a gift and passion towards painting from an early age. Unlike his brother, however, he was not fortunate enough to pursue his passion in formal education as his family's modest means did not offer him that opportunity. After high school, he worked as a car driver in Ho Chi Minh City for wealthier individuals and families before earning enough to start a dry cleaning service. Throughout those times, he never did lay down his paint brush and continued to hone his skills. Starting in 2007, he started selling his artwork in a new career path that brings him full circle back to his first passion and alongside his brother.
