Ha Noi artist brings idealism to HCM City (March 03, 2005)

Tinh Yeu (Love) by Truong Dinh Hao.
HCM CITY — Ha Noi-born painter Truong Dinh Hao has a new exhibit at the Lotus Gallery in HCM City, running until March 8.

The show’s 13 lacquer paintings and two pastels on paper portray Viet Nam’s beauty with a unique poultry motif. The painter depicts roosters from legends, countryside landscapes and quirky characters with cheerful colours.

Since it is the Year of the Rooster, poultry appears periodically in Hao’s paintings, including Gia Dinh Ga (Rooster’s Family) and Chu Ga Choai (Teen Cock).

Highlights of the exhibition include Nu Cuoi (The Smile), Tieng Dan (The Sound of a Musical Instrument), Nhay Day (Skipping) and Trai Tim Vu Tru (The Heart of the Planet).

From his style and bright colours, viewers will assume that Hao is a young artist, not a 68-year-old veteran. Although Hao is not young, he is idealistic, and his works are happy, peaceful, and hopeful.

Born in 1937, Hao graduated from the Ha Noi Fine Arts College in 1960.

He has had a total of four exhibitions in the capital and in HCM City. His works are available in various domestic galleries, as well as included in private collections in the US, Canada, France, Singapore and Japan.
