Hai has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines, the United States, Portugal, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. He received his BFA in Studio Art from Harvard University and is a member of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association. See more of Hai’s work here.
