Eleventh episode of the program “Pralines. Deliciousness from the world of art” by Ly thi Thanh Thao and Sergio Mandelli dedicated to Hoang Duong Cam.
Hoang Duong Cam is  born in 1974, in Hanoi.
Since his tender age, he takes painting lessons at the studio of Pham Viet Song.
Although he has worked with diverse techniques, above all with those having to do with new technologies, such as video and photography, painting remains his true passion.
As artist, he has to adopt a right attitude to face a reality that, in just few decades, has witnessed enormous changes in politics, in economics, and in society.
Initially Cam looks to the figures of the popular Dong Ho paintings and the stylized ones of comic-strips and of Street art (Haring).
Then his visit to New York in 2005 plays a fundamental part in his artistic career.
At the basis of his work there is an ironic and amused behavior of an artist who is imbued with Dadaism, but also a meditation on the philosophy of Plato and on the theory of Quantum Physics.
