Historical Context:
Lebadang was born in 1921 in Birch-La-Dong, a village along the Huong River in Quang-Tri Province of Hue, Vietnam. Living in Paris for much of his life, it was there he found his first marketable success painting hundreds of cats on ceramic plates. He expressed himself through a variety of mediums including painting, watercolor, sculpture and jewelry. He is known for combining different media and creating highly textured works of art. On his work he states, "I don’t just use brushes to paint on canvas, but mix pasteboard, paint and limestone and spread my works on large pieces of thick burlap. So, my paintings usually look rough and irregular in shape, but I think they are strange in a beautiful way. It is often a marriage between different kinds of art, painting, and sculpture, as well as installation art and architecture.”
