Lecturer Nguyen Tien Viet’s “Fate”
The woodcutting process involved careful work, as the printing technique requires relief carving and special printing paper. Lecturer Nguyen Tien Viet used a special knife to cut away the nonprinting surfaces of the planed woodblock. The protrusions were then smeared with paint and the image was printed, color by color. The variety of deep browns recalled the peacefulness of a Vietnamese countryside village, achieved by an ingenious combination of popular Vietnamese and Japanese woodcarving, providing art lovers with a special perception of a deep inner world.
“For a lecturer who came to Visual Arts through love and passion, winning a prestigious C prize from the Union of Literature and Arts Associations is an incredible honor,” proclaimed a joyful lecturer Nguyen Tien Viet. “My success will encourage me to continue working even harder to improve my innovative lecturing skills, during the growth and impact of the Industry 4.0 era. In the near future, I want to share my reduction woodcutting skills and experience to teach a more multifaceted view on Art.”
