Dang Dinh Hoi's colorful Gouache painting

Gouache is a type of paint consisting of pigment suspended in water. Gouache differs from watercolor in that the particles are larger, the ratio of pigment to water is much higher, and an additional white pigment such as chalk is also present. This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities.

Below are some of the paintings by Mr. Dang Dinh Hoi,  He uses very vivid color in his gouache painting that skillfully and elegantly incorporate themes of Vietnamese culture,  with French post-Impressionist influence: of Paul Gauguin (e.g. the tilted heads) and the color influence of Henri Matisse.
