From the organizers

The subject of all the artworks in recent years is about life, painter Vu Cuong uses cloud to tell his simple story. Clouds from the high mountains of Ha Giang, clouds surrounds on the harsh alpine views. Sometimes the clouds rolled violently, sometimes very faded, peaceful. The people of the rock plateau with intense vitality, the courage to overcome nature, live with a simple soul, as innocent as the sky. The children of Ha Giang with glittering eyes made the artist sobbed. The more you go the more you see, when there are enough experiences of the emotions, we will find life as light as smoke. Painter Vu Cuong’s painting expressing the philosophy, passion, and self-questioning on oil paints has created a strong visual appeal, with a depth of humanity.
