He was one of Victor Tardieu’s students at the Indochina School of Fine Arts in Hanoi. Coming from an educated Catholic family, he had the opportunity to discover and study calligraphy.

He was awarded a scholarship which enabled him to come and study in Paris until 1949. That same year, he left the capital to move to the south of France. He met some artists who lived there part of the year.

He worked as a sculptor, mainly making busts, including that of Albert Sarraut, the Emperor Bao Dai. During WWII, he was forced to abandon bronze sculpture, so he was forced to turn to painting.

He was inspired by the atmosphere of Paris for his canvases, while keeping an oriental touch.
