Chinese watercolor paintings on display in town Hoang Phong More than 80 watercolor paintings from 45 artists of the Chinese Artist Club are on display at the HCMC Fine Arts Association in HCMC’s District 3 in celebration of Vietnam’s 72nd National Day (September 2, 1945-2017). Arts lovers will have the opportunity to admire works by artists such as Truong Han Minh, Ly Tung Nien, Ly Khac Nhu and Truong Lo, who are masters of traditional Chinese watercolor paintings in Vietnam. Inspired from fact-find trips made by Chinese artists to famous tourist destinations throughout the country, the paintings cover a wide spectrum of subjects including stunning countryside landscapes, daily lives of fishermen in fishing villages along coastal areas, and ethnic people in highland regions apart from spring landscapes with peach or apricot blossoms. Visitors can also gain a deep insight into the livelihood and hardships of local inhabitants through the paintings depicting the lives of Saigonese such as Sang som tren kenh Tau Hu (An early morning on Tau Hu Canal) by artist Truong Lo, Mot goc cho Binh Dien (A corner of Binh Dien Market) by Tam Nguyen or Khu dan cu ven song (A riverside residential area) by Luc Ha Kim. The exhibition is open to public viewing until September 2 at the association, 218A Pasteur Street in District 3.
