Artists sing the praises of folk musician

'Melancholy of Aged,' one of Buu Chi's works dedicated to Trinh Cong Son.
The legacy of southern song writer Trinh Cong Son is the focus of an exhibition of paintings by Dinh Cuong and Buu Chi at HCM City's Tu Do gallery.

The exhibition displays 15 paintings from each artist, six of which depict song writer Trinh Cong Son: Dinh Cuong's 'Noctural Garden' and Buu Chi's 'External Reminiscence Moon,' 'Melancholy of Aged Stone,' 'Impermanence,' 'Reminiscence,' and 'Impermanent Portrait.'

The two oil painters initially came to fame in southern Vietnam in the 1970s, and are now aged in their fifties.

Dinh Cuong has been described as having "an unfailing devotion to the true creative voice of the art of painting," while Buu Chi is dedicated to philosophical themes through the harmony of symbolic style and surrealist features.

Dinh Cuong was a former lecturer at the Hue College of Arts, while Buu Chi was a member of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association's Executive Committee between 1983 and 1988.

The exhibition opened on July 15 and closes on July 30.
