Vay Hy, born in the 1960s, grew up in the UK with a western academic education. Yet his family always keeps the Chinese traditions at heart.

Vay Hy is interested in the investigation of the very nature of each media he uses. In the case of ink and water he is trying to expand and redefine the media by adapting many untested way of working such as standing the paper vertical, employing a water hose he washes and manipulates the ink from the surface. With a degree of control he allows the natural flow of the water to greatly determine the marks and shapes of the art works.The wax works are also formulated by burning and melting the wax to a liquid state to allow a natural merged of patterns and colours which create it’s own identity uniqueness.

Vay Hy thinks that “Abstraction have their own vitality and attraction. In many way it is the wonderful connection between the work and the audience that define the meaning and importance of a work of art ”. His works although full of ambiguity, but are expressive and energetic with a sense of simplicity and tranquility. Vay Hy, born in 1966 in Vietnam, originated from China Guangxi Province. Now lives and works in London.
