The “Đa Diện 5” showcases 50 mixed media, oil and acrylic paintings by the group’s members, including Nguyen Minh, Nguyen Manh Hung, and Chu Viet Cuong, and guest artist Luong Luu Bien of HCM City.

The artists use vivid colours to create vibrant images of the country and their homeland, and show their thoughts about life and love.

Hung, a graduate of Vietnam Fine Arts University, said: “The exhibition reflects the multiple faces and colours of life.”

It also shows the creativity and hard work of artists who promise to offer contemporary paintings to art lovers in HCM City, he added.

The 37-year-old artist displays four oil and acrylic paintings at the exhibition. The work features the beautiful landscapes of different regions in Vietnam.

“I love landscapes bearing the imprint of a region and its culture,” said Hung, who launched his first solo exhibition Nghiêng Đêm (Life in Night) showcasing paintings of life along the river in Hanoi in 2017.

Street life is a theme of a series of abstract paintings titled Phố (Street) by Nguyen Minh.

He uses still images to reflect romanticism in his paintings through his appealing work Bên Cửa Sổ (By the Window).

Through his works, Minh wants to send a message about the need "to innovate and work creatively.”

 

The exhibition also introduces paintings by Duong Tuan featuring life and fate, Chu Viet Cuong on street life in Hanoi, and Doan Hoang Lam on self-discovery.

Guest artist Bien presents new paintings depicting his admiration of women.

Bien, a painter and a sculptor, is a member of the HCM City and Vietnam Fine Arts associations. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in HCM City, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, South Korea and France.

Đa Diện group, established in 2018, consists of artists from Hanoi and northern provinces.

The group held four exhibitions in Hanoi and HCM City in 2019 and 2020.

Tao Linh, a group member, said: “Đa Diện is open to any artist whose style and art works are known by the public.”

The “Đa Diện 5” exhibition remains open until April 6 at the museum at 97A Pho Duc Chinh Street in District 1.
