Sticking with watercolor on silk for over 10 years, Bui Tien Tuan is the most attentive and successful artist at present and because of that, his friends and colleagues give him a cool nickname 'Tuan Lua' or 'Tuan Silk'. His women on silk are not elegant, gentle or graceful as those ones depicted on silk before 1945 in Indochine period. He mainly focuses on modern, stylish, cool girls with many sexy curves on body.
Traditional Vietnamese women are often considered reserved, 'vulnerable' in Ao Dai & conical hat, Tuan's women, however, look stronger, energetic, and...colorful.
