All of the paintings were selected form the artists’ latest collections, featuring the beauty of Việt Nam and its people.

Highlighted works portray the daily life of people living in remote northern provinces and islands.

The paintings of Minh, a master of thủy mặc art, have impressed viewers. He uses traditional Chinese ink techniques to portray Vietnamese objects and send messages about love and peace.

Minh was born in Chợ Lớn (Big Market) in HCM City’s District 5. He has more than 60 years of experience in watercolour painting.
