HÀ NỘI — Seven oil paintings by Vietnamese painter Nguyễn Minh Nam will go on display at a solo exhibition at the Kayser Trade Galleries in Berlin, Germany, from October 19-21.
Most of the paintings expose the conflicts between the traditional and modern cultures in Việt Nam, which is reflected through the ideas of painting humans and objects in transparent style.
Nguyễn Minh Nam graduated from Việt Nam University of Fine Arts. The 39-year-old painter won first prize in the last year’s Viet Art Today competition for young painters. He has held two solo exhibitions, including Son Vàng Một Thuở (Once upon a Magnificence) in 2015 and Ký Ức Nhạt Nhòa (Fading Memories) in 2016. — VNS
