"The painter Van Tho was very well known with his big lacquers and oil paintings of great subjects shown at solemn places. And now again, he presents a new oil paintings exhibition with bright colours, free painting brush trails, delicious masses of colours, however his paintings are full of simplicity and nationality. He works with the top of his force and lives by his carrier and that is really an admirable example of hard work and creation." said Tran Khanh Chuong General Secretary of the Vietnamese Fine-Arts Association.

((...His creative style is at the same time traditional and modern. The great part of the colours used by him are pure and almost like the ones of the folk paintings; some colours mixing in his paintings aim only to give the profution and the sensitization to his creative palette. The shapes and the lines are all free and moving and that makes me to think that, after schetching, his hand had to work with high speed to over come his feelings.
I enjoy his paintings surprisedly in admiring his inspirations and the audacity in his new creative style.
Van Tho has changed himself incredibly in creation. His painting is not a test or a research but a real beginning of a new way orienting to new successes of tradition and modernization, maturity and spontaneousness".
