Sand Painting Art

Can you imagine drawing pictures with sand? Sand Painting Art is drawn using only colored sand, a spoon and a bamboo skewer - no glue, no tape, or any other materials are used. Simply by using the skewer to shift the sand little by little, we can create shapes and pictures.


We make all of our sand painting art with enthusiasm and precision, working with care. This very unique skill is fun to watch on video and everyone will be surprised by watching a piece go from plain sand to Art.

ABOUT    Phi Long  and  Vietnamese Master Sand Painting Artist


Do Dang Phi Long was born in 1988 as a normal, healthy child, but at the age of 1, he contracted pneumonia, which led to the loss of his hearing and speech.  In 2005, Phi Long, by chance, saw the unique sand paintings of artist, Y Lan. This famous artist’s paintings impressed him so much that he asked her to give him an opportunity to be her apprentice. She accepted, and with a tremendous amount of training and hard work, just a year later, Phi Long became a skilled sand painting artist.

Back in Phan Thiet, Phi Long opened a sand painting school for disabled youth. In 2009, Phi Long opened a more spacious and better-equipped school for the disabled to learn in better conditions. To support his kind-hearted determination, Binh Thuan’s Provincial government granted Phi Long 50 year rights of usage to 500 square meters of land. The number of trainees gradually increased, and from the opening of the first sand painting class until now, Phi Long has trained over 340 people from all over Vietnam.

Currently, the Phi Long Sand Painting Company employs 30 disabled people, including skillful artisans and apprentices. The apprentices are provided with free boarding and food, and receive a monthly stipend that depends on their skill level.
