Through 50 oil paintings, the exhibition brings the audience a light and meaningful message about life. Simple and close-up pictures such as lamps, lemon pots, teapots, flower pots, five fruit trays, folk toys in the corners of Hanoi’s old quarter, mountain landscapes, fields, rivers, etc. The author recreated it through his works to express his deep love for life, people, nature and his country.

A distinctive feature in the paintings of Nguyen Minh Son is that there is almost no human image, but it is always in full vividness. A healthy space with blue skies, orchards of green and red leaves according to the season, primitive houses, small boats … the painter expresses it in magical colors.

Originally from Bac Ninh, painter Nguyen Minh Son has a dreamy and romantic spirit. The painter combined the colors of Dong Ho’s famous folk prints with his knowledge of modern painting.

Nguyen Minh Son graduated from Hanoi University of Fine Arts (now Vietnam University of Fine Arts) in 2000. During his student years, he participated in many painting exhibitions. His oil paintings of Vietnamese landscapes are well known and have been exhibited in UK, USA, Republic of Korea and Singapore…. – VNA
