Exhibition,Hanoi,HCM City-based artists
Body Language by Le Hai Trieu, 100cm by 130cm.

Asked about the name of the exhibition – “Ờ” (Yes/Oh Yeah) – the artists Thai Vinh Thanh, Le Hai Trieu and Hoang Vo just laughed and said: “Well, that’s it.”

In Vietnamese, “ờ” means an utterance showing agreement or expressing when you remember something.

“We want to show off our prestige in Hanoi and respect to audiences in the capital city,” said Hoang Vo.

“In fine arts, Hanoi not only has a long tradition and many achievements, but also of criticism, with a sharp look.”

 

“We hope that when the audiences look at the paintings, they will realise something and say ‘ờ’.”

Vo is showing abstract paintings in mixed media. For him, painting is a passion, job and habit. It’s also a shelter where he receives positive energy and spreads it to others.

Painter Thanh introduces artworks combining western and eastern arts while Trieu focuses on surrealism.

The exhibition will run until January 10 at the Exhibition Centre of Fine Arts and Photography, 29 Hang Bai Street, Hanoi. — VNS
