The twin artist Lê Brothers (Lê Ngọc Thanh and Lê Đức Hải), born in Quảng Bình Province, graduated from the Huế College of Arts (2000), where Lê Ngọc Thanh studied lacquer painting and Lê Đức Hải oil painting.
After painting, the artists started creating performances and video works highlighting the metaphor of similarity. Many of their works speak of the issue of Southern and Northern Vietnam and other places that were or are divided. Lê Brothers are known for their unique approach to history, identity and the interpretation of the past in the present.
Lê Brothers also have been connecting artists across the world through Vietnam’s one of the first artists-in-residence programs, the New Space Arts Foundation, which they launched in April 2008, from a gallery they founded in 2000.
