Boi Tran Garden (formerly Boi Tran Art Gallery) is a privately owned exquisite international compound for art, antiques, Hue culinary culture, and traditional wooden architecture. Nestled on Thien An Hill, proud but comforting, where the wind frightens the centuries old pine trees, and the bashful, even prudish, flowers triumph over the rain, a place some leading Vietnamese artists’ masterpieces such as Victor Tardieu, Vu Cao Dam, Tran Quang Tran (Ngym), To Ngoc Van, Hoang Tich Chu, Nguyen Tu Nghiem, Tran Dong Luong, Ton That Dao, Nguyen Tien Chung, Nguyen Do Cung, Bui Xuan Phai, Diep Minh Chau, Nguyen Sang, Nguyen Trung, and others housed in a more than 100-year-old mansion blended with French Indochina influences.
Founded in 1995, Boi Tran Garden has a heritage and reputation for connoisseurship and exclusive bespoke service for buying and selling art, as well as offers an inviting experience for Hue traditional fine cuisine and history-related stories. Amongst many dignitaries who have graced Boi Tran Garden is Anthony Bourdain who featured Boi Tran and her royal courses in Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown aired on CNN in 2014.
THE CALL FROM WITHIN
To the best of my ability as an artist, I’d like to express my greatest gratitude for what life has graciously offered me over time. The generosity I am granted and thus being thankful for might very well be as simple, yet full of blessings, as a prayer to our sacred Mother, unconditional maternity, or the graceful beauty of nature such as the first day-breaking sunrays or residual dew of the night. I treasure these precious moments like the miracles joyfully lighting up my life.
