Painting exhibition shows French artist’s love for Vietnam

 An exhibition by Vietnamese-French painter Vincent Monluc is underway in Ho Chi Minh City, featuring art paintings depicting Vietnamese nature, people and daily life.

The exhibition named “Dream” will be running through January 20 at Ngo Art Gallery at 21 Vo Truong Toan Street in Thu Duc City.

On display are 95 watercolour and oil paintings created by the 70-year-old artist over the last five years, through which he conveyed his deep love for his homeland Vietnam. Some of them describe the beauty of natural landscapes in Vietnam while others depict daily life of urban Vietnamese.

Monluc was born in Vietnam in 1952. He and his family left Vietnam to live in France when he was just 12 years old. He graduated from the French National School of Decorative Arts (École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs) with a degree in cinema.

He returned to Vietnam to establish a company for animation production in HCM City in 1994 and decided to settle down in his motherland in 2019./.
