HÀ NỘI — An exhibition featuring the work of Czech graphic artist Jiří Slíva will open to public from 3pm on March 26 at the Việt Nam Fine Arts Museum.

Entitled Café Nonsens, the exhibition features humorous drawings and lithographs with many inspired by the theme of cafés, one of Slíva’s favourite subjects. His work also features famous people, including novelist and short story writer Franz Kafka and Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud.

Music, particularly jazz, is also the main major theme as Silva himself is an active musician.

His style is distinctive and unique. The drawings are very detailed and accurate, using simple, expressive lines to tell a complete story with a few gestures. Jiří Slíva’s work displays the best of the Czech art of cartoons and book illustrations.

Taking place during a cultural festival to celebrate the 135th birthday of Franz Kafka in Hà Nội, the Café Nonsens exhibition will be a highlight on the sidelines that Kafka’s fans and art lovers should not miss.

Café Nonsens will run until March 30. Việt Nam Fine Arts Museum is at 66 Nguyễn Thái Học Street. — VNS
