Paul Harris first visited Vietnam in March 2004 and has since returned more than twenty times. One of the things that draws him back to Vietnam is his love affair with Vietnamese modern art, which he started collecting on his very first visit.
Paul Harris also collects Chinese porcelain and paintings and owns The Coldingham Gallery in the Scottish border country, as well as Chinese Art in Scotland and the news/blog site ChineseArt.co.uk. He is an accredited art lecturer with the British National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies (NADFAS) and the author of several books on art topics. His favourite artists include Van Chien, Vu Duc Toan and Ngo Van Thanh (the first artist he bought back in 2004). Today he has more pictures than wall space and now, in 2014, he is launching this website to make available a selection of pictures which, he believes, represent some of the best of Vietnamese contemporary art of the last ten years.
