The exhibition, titled Mừng Đảng, mừng Xuân Tân Sửu (Congratulations to the Party, Welcome to the Year of the Buffalo) was organised by the Vietnam Fine Arts Association 

The exhibition hosts 167 works of art, created on a variety of materials, including oil, acrylic, lacquer and silk, all diverse in visual languages and styles. 

The pieces together make up a lively, beautiful painting of spring in all corners of the country.

Springtime exhibitions have become a tradition for the Vietnam Fine Arts Association. Typically, after a year of hard work, the artists feel more relaxed in their own skin to complete artworks in spring.  

Besides typical spring motifs like flowers and red envelopes, many artists chose to represent the buffalo in various forms since the coming Lunar New Year is the Year of the Buffalo, according to the eastern zodiac.

Luong Xuan Doan, chairman of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association, said: “The pieces exhibited at this exhibition are like new year greeting cards from the artists.

"That clearly shows when we see spring energy in the exhibits through different media, languages and emotions.

"All of those make up a beautiful picture of spring, full of hope for change of Vietnamese contemporary art and our country.”

The exhibition is open until February 10. VNS
