Born in Vietnam in 1940, Trung is known for his beautiful works of Vietnamese women. The figures he paints have long slender bodies, flapping hair, and demure elegance, reminiscent of the style of Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli. However, the background, apparel, clothing, and posture retain Vietnamese traditions and Buddhist elements. This showcases an artistic tendency to merge things and transcend aesthetics. In 1963, he won the gold medal in the Vietnam Spring Salon Exhibition. Since the 1990s, he has been invited to show his paintings in traveling exhibitions organized by private galleries and museums in Europe and Asia. His works of art have been included in the collections of national art museums in Europe and Asia, such as Ho Chi Minh City Fine Art Museum, Museo Biblioteca Archivio in Bassano del Grappa, Singapore National Art Museum, and Vietnam Fine Art Museum in Hanoi.
