HÀ NỘIVietnamese painter Lê Quốc Huy has opened his second private exhibition at the Việt Nam Fine Arts Museum, 66 Nguyễn Thái Học Street.

The exhibition, named after him, features 50 artworks, sketched with acrylic material on paper.

Huy, 49, is vice head of fine arts research, collection and assessment department of Việt Nam Fine Arts Museum and a lecturer at the Việt Nam Fine Arts Institute.

"Some art lovers have probably heard about my father, Lê Vân Hải, who lives in Quảng Yên township in Northern Province of Quảng Ninh and is known in the domestic arts circle for painting the sea with abundant colour, extraordinary layout and strong features.

However, unlike my father, my paintings mingle colour, form and shape. I also experiments by arranging the subject under the form of network connection, multilayers and opening a new language structure for arts admirers," said Huy.

“This exhibition is inspired by Đông Sơn bronze drums, including patterns of human being, beasts, birds, multi-star painted on the face of the drums. The image of độc nhãn (one eye) was also used here as one of my latest experiments. In the future, I will open a sketching class for children to teach them about traditional culture,” he adds.

Art specialists say Huy’s artworks let viewers sense space, the saltiness of sea water and the air with a plain portrait of sudden moments of human beings, animals and plants. 

The exhibition lasts until August 21. — VNS
