Tran Huy Oanh was born in 1939 in Hanoi. He graduated from the Ecole Superior de Beaux ArtsI de I'Indochine ( Fine arts school of Hanoi) as a sculptor. He was then retained to work as a lecturer at the school.
Oanh?s well known painting named ?Dragon Jaws Bridge? is currently exhibited at the Hanoi Arts Museum. It was completed in lacquer and portrays the scene of the Army and the people in a secret operation.
The propaganda painting ?Uncle Ho is Together with Us on Operations?, which Oanh painted together with his college peer and fellow painter, Nguyen Thu, strongly reflects the force of the People?s Revolution.
At present, Oanh serves as the Vice General Secretary of the Viet Nam Arts Association.
