Painting by Vietnamese hearing-impaired artist on display in Italy

“Mother and child” painting by hearing-impaired artist Duong Phuong Linh is being displayed at the RealEYES art gallery at Vinicio hotel, Ansedonia town, Italy’s Tuscany region from July 26 and August 5.

Linh, who was born to deaf, expressed her strong feeling for happiness and hope for a bright future through the painting, which depicts an ethnic mother in Sa Pa mountainous town in the northwest of Vietnam carrying her baby on the back and keeping her eyes ahead.

The painting is among 12 excellent art works of independent artists and disadvantaged students from art universities and schools. They will then travel to other Italian regions before they are auctioned for charity.

Their art works will contribute to the funding of the project “Le Cellule di Francesca” (Francesca’s Cells) to study the acute myeloid leukemia.
