ART OF SOUTH EAST ASIA MARSHES ON WITH VIETNAM’S BEAMING HOT!

I HAVE BEEN WRITNG ABOUT ART OF VIETNAM AND SE ASIA FOR SOME TIME NOW!!!

 

GABRIEL CUTODIO IS COING OF AGE!!!



I THOUGHT THE PEAK WAS NIGH BUT I WAS VERY WRONG ON MANY OCCASIONS OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS. THE ART OF VIETNAM STILL HAS SOME GROUND TO COVER AND AS LONG AS THE COUNTRY’S ECONOMY IS DOING WELL ITS ART WILL DO EVEN BETTER. PRICES IN PARIS REACHED 500,000 EUROS. THE STAGE IS SET FOR THE MILLION, WHEN THE RIGHT PIECE OF ART APPEARS ON THE MARKET.

THE PRICES OF ARTISTS SUCH AS LE PHO AND MAI THU HAVE SKYROCKETED AND THE SKY SEEMS TO BE THE LIMIT. FROM A FEW THOUSAND POUNDS TEN YEARS AGO, WE ARE NOW AT THE POINT OF A FEW HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS AND THE TREND IS CLEARLY UP AND UP.

RECENT SALES AT SOTHEBYS IN HONG KONG HAVE BEEN MATCHED AND IN SOME CASES BEEN SURPASSED IN PARIS WHERE THE MAJORITY OF IMPORTANT VIETNAMESE ARTISTS SETTLED AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES AND A LOT OF THEIR WORK IS FOUND IN FRANCE.

AS I HAVE ALREADY MENTIONED IN PREVIOUS ENTRIES TO MY BLOG I MISSED THE BOAT EVEN THOUGH I WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO BE ON THAT BOAT CALLED VIETNAMESE ART. HOWEVER, THERE IS NO POINT IN CRYING OVER SPILLED MILK AND THE SEARCH IS CONTINUING FOR MORE ART OF VIETNAM OR THE SOUTH EAST ASIA FROM COUNTRIES SUCH AS KOREA, INDONESIA, PHILIPPINES, JAPAN.

FORTUNATELY FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER I KEPT A BEAUTIFUL PQAINTING FROM THE PHILIPPINES IN THE COLLECTION AND I AM SURE THAT THE ARTIST IS NOW IN LINE TO SHOOT IN PRICE AS IT IS BECOMING CLEARER AND CLEARER IN MANILLA. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE IMAGE ABOVE, I AM REFERRING A GREAT PAINTING OF A LARGE SIZE 90 X 130 CM OIL ON CANVAS THAT SPEAKS OF PHILIPPINO LIFE AND AN ARTIST WHO WAS A STUDENT OF AMORSOLO BUT A AMSTER IN HIS OWN RIGHT.

KEEP LOOKING AND KEEP READING MY BLOG AS THERE WILL BE ANOTHER HOT MARKET SOMEWHERE SOON.
