The Hao Khi Thang Long exhibition is aimed at honouring the art careers of two Vietnamese artists. It hopes to share the cultural and artistic values of paintings by Nguyen Anh Thuong and Vu Thi Hong Ngoc with the community.
After the generation of Indochina artists from 1925 to 1945, Vietnamese art was followed by generations of talented painters trained in the resistance and after peace in 1954. Painter Nguyen Anh Thuong (Nguyen Vu) is one of them. Thuong, who was born in 1930, was one of the excellent students on the same course as To Ngoc Van (1955-1957) at the Vietnam Fine Arts College.
Throughout his artistic journey, he created symbolic paintings which depict Vietnam's historical and social context with great fluctuations in the 20th century. Despite the harshness of history, Vietnam and its people have overcome great challenges.
Meanwhile, female artist Vu Thi Hong Ngoc, who was born in 1945, graduated from the University of Industrial Fine Arts in 1978. Her paintings highlight simplicity and truth, and evoke impressive emotions about historical sites such as ancient pagodas and temples.
Other paintings are about street corners at the time of changing seasons, river wharves, and peaceful bamboo groves in the countryside. All of her works exude a soul of artistic love for nature and humanity.
The paintings belong to Phan Minh Ha's private collection. The exhibition is not only rich in bright colours, but also spreads a romantic, positive, and loving spirit to the viewers.
