Springtime exhibitions have become a tradition for the Viet Nam Fine Arts Association. Typically, after a year of hard work, the artists feel more relaxed in their own skin to complete artworks in spring.
Besides typical spring motifs like flowers and red envelopes, many artists chose to represent the buffalo in various forms since the coming Lunar New Year is the Year of the Buffalo, according to the eastern zodiac.
Lương Xuan Đoan, chairman of the Viet Nam Fine Arts Association, said: “The pieces exhibited at this exhibition are like new year greeting cards from the artists.
"That clearly shows when we see spring energy in the exhibits through different media, languages and emotions.
"All of those make up a beautiful picture of spring, full of hope for change of Vietnamese contemporary art and our country.”
The exhibition is open until February 10. VNS
