"Crazy Monkey discovered his lifelong fascination with art when he was young. Born to parents who are both Vietnamese governmental office workers and educated at one of the oldest institutions in Hanoi, he quickly found his interests lay outside the remit of a traditional Vietnamese education. “I focused solely on drawing and was quite dismal in the staple of scholarly subjects,” he remembers. “At 16, I enrolled in a semi-professional school, spending half a day learning the common curriculum and the other studying fine arts.”
