EXHIBITION

Hanoi-Exhibition: Musical Painting


Until August 31

L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

“Some people choose the straight path, others follow the unknown turns.” I belong to the second group. At the age of 16, I started working as a shift worker in a factory … and also started painting. At the age of 17, I was adventuring here and there. At the age of 20, I did my first solo exhibition. After a few years, I retired from painting because I was too hungry to explore other art forms such as theater, music and cinema. More or less, all of them have brought me happiness … During that time, I had the opportunity to meet famous artists and learn a lot.

In the end, I’m back with painting, in a serious way. And because music is my passion, so I’ve always pain with music. And now, I’m painting music.

Free entrance

Hanoi-Exhibition: An Unseen World



Until June 30,
First Floor Gallery, Art and Coffee, 168 Ngo Xa Dan 2, Ho Dac Di Street.

Join us for the opening of a new art space in Hanoi and the showcase of a new series of artwork from artist David Evans!

The show will feature David’s latest project here in Hanoi with a series of portraits on the subject of consciousness. Inspired from the New York School and the German Neo-expressionist.

David Evans is an American artist who has been heavily influenced by the street art in Brooklyn and the Lower East Side of Manhattan along with the Jazz scene in New York. David takes the primitive and primordial aspects of modernity and forms portraits littered with texts, not of the visual world but rather of the unseen.

Ultimately this project depicts the tension between notions of modernity which are in constant conflict with the inherent primitive state of humanity and its need for the unseen world.

The works will be on display for a limited time after the event.

Hanoi-Exhibition shows artworks inspired by music



Until August 31,

French Cultural Centre L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

With a smartphone, visitors can scan the QR code on the painting by Jacob Reymond at an exhibition which has opened in Hanoi, then listen to the song that inspired him to create the painting.
