Bio from askart.com:  "Painter and sculptor Vu Cao Dam was born in Hanoi in 1908. He attended the Ece des Beaux Arts de Indochine between 1926 and 1931. In 1932 he obtained a scholarship to further his studies as a sculptor in France. Eventually he specialized in painting. His painting during this period was mainly on silk, and showed the influence of ancient Chinese art.“

Well…I can not resist any types of decorative things, pretty patterns are my biggest weakness.  My inspiration comes from lots of different areas, the main ones are: Rococo (Art Movement) , Fashion from the Victorian and Elizabethan era.
