HCM CITY (VNS) — Self-taught artist Tran Hoang Minh Duc uses geometric lines to depict daily life and landscapes in his 21 oil-on-canvas paintings on display at an exhibition in HCM City.
"Recollections" at the Tu Do Gallery features landscapes titled City, Sai Gon Riverside, and Evening in Da Lat.
In The Family II, the 50-year-old artist uses geometric depictions of parents, a child, and a cat in background to express the family's love and happiness.
There are realistic works depicting the amiable nature of the countryside and its people such as Hamlet II and Young Girl with Bandana.
As a chemical engineer, Duc was inspired by the geometric patterns represented by cranes, electric wires, and turbines. He became good enough to have held six solo and several group exhibitions in Viet Nam and countries like Belgium, Australia, Singapore, and the US.
Tu Do Gallery is at 53 Ho Tung Mau Street, District 1, and the exhibition will go on until September 30. — VNS
