Minh’s latest exhibition, Thái Mặc Niên Hoa (The Art of Ink and Wash), was organised by the HCM City Fine Arts Association last year. The event featured paintings by Minh and four veteran artists in thuỷ mặc. 

Minh’s works were selected from the artist’s collections from different periods featuring the beauty of Vietnam and its people. These works portray people in remote or mountainous areas and children in daily life.  

“Minh’s paintings evoke viewers’ emotions,” said Tieu Minh Triet, a member of the Fine Arts Cub of Chinese-Vietnamese Artists in District 5.
