Thread of thought throughout the content and form of paintings, in the form of exhibitions, and has always conformed absolutely to a rule and nothing more: that is DIPOLAR - Two Poles, a technical term from physics. Two-Poles indicating the resistance in the things and phenomena of life. The pair of concepts such as near and far, young and old, abstraction and perception , familiar and unfamiliar etc .... The antagonism of bipolar sometimes leads to extremes but still closely linked to each other - is reflected drastically in the whole works. The discordant and antagonism in the works to bring different emotions to the public. The author can select a number of simple subjects of everyday life modeling: from images of the city, family, familiar to the motive in the line of traditional Dong Ho Vietnam such as : Rat’s wedding, Picking Coconut, Carp watching moon…But the show is different and may not be "upon the eye" of the majority to the imagination about lacquer painting. Viewers see less picture in Khai Doan’s paintings , all the elements as they come together forming, as it melts, sometimes disappeared, created a secluded space with the name of Khai Doan that changes, tormented, but also full of fiercely positive. Even in the picture , the idea of DIPOLAR is always expressed obviously.
