Mr. Hong-Oai displayed an
Asian aesthetic in his art.
Don Hong-Oai was born in China in 1929 and then lived in the Chinese community in Vietnam, later moving to the United States. He passed away in 2004.
His art travels in the opposite direction of a style like photo-realism,
which tries to mimic a photographic reality via painting. Instead, his images mimic traditional Asian painting and prints via photography.
