“They have rather clear tendency of neo-expressionism. Some just follow the spontaneity and instinct while others intentionally do research about neo-expressionism on the Internet. In any way, their painting language all has the same reference with the language of the neo-expressionism predecessors around the world. They have contributed to making the language of neo-expressionism today more diverse and more personalized,” said Bui Quang Thang, art director of VICAS Art Studio.

Neo-expressionism, also known as Junge Wilde or Neue Wilden, was initiated in the late 1970s by a group of German painters including Georg Baselitze as the leader and other well-known artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Markus Lupertz, Eugen Schonebeck and AR Penck.

It was developed as a reaction against minimalism and conceptualism which were dominating European art at the time which concerned things far from reality. Neo-expressionism then spread to various countries in Europe and flourished in the U.S. with prominent artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel and Elizabeth Murray.

Human, sexuality, mythology and history were the popular topics of the movement and later political and psychological issues are also included.
