From the organizers:
You are invited to the exhibition “Mùa Hoa và Chim” (Season of Flowers and Birds) of artworks made by two sculptors Tran An and Thai Nhat Minh.
The exhibition showcases the two sculpture collections: “Mùa Hoa” (Season of Flowers) by Tran An, and “Chim” (Birds) by Thai Nhat Minh.
Tran An’s “Season of Flowers” comprises of sculptures made of an unusual material – welded iron. Inspired by nature, the artist used welding technique to master the medium, creating tree trunks, sprouts, flower buds – full of life yet tough and strong.
“Birds” by Thai Nhat Minh borrows the images of mythical birds only seen in folklores, fairy tales or fables to represent the artist’s emotions, reminisce about the past and express his own take on the four-season cycle. Using papier-mâché (“chewed paper”), he created strong, sturdy yet natural figures.
Tran Van An (member of Vietnam Fine Arts Association) and Thai Nhat Minh (served as an artistic juror in Young Arts Festival 2017) both graduated from Vietnam University of Fine Arts and have had years of experience in sculpture making. They won grand prizes in numerous exhibitions and participated in international events such as “Arts and culture festival at Arts For Fife Cente #2”, “Hanoi March Connecting”, “Asia art link”, “Affordable Art Fair”,…
