Wildlife Exhibition Highlights Need for Environmental Protection

Vietnam is not often exposed to exhibitions showcasing scientific research illustrations, wildlife paintings, or wildlife conservation graphic novels.


The important seminars will be accompanied by an exhibition titled “Into Wildlife” featuring the works of two Vietnamese artists. This exhibition showcases internationally renowned artwork that promotes environmental protection.

The artworks are on display at the exhibition

This exhibition showcases approximately 100 artworks created by two talented artists – Dao Van Hoang and Jeet Dzung. Through meticulous observation and precise painting techniques, these artists present the natural beauty of wildlife while delivering a powerful and compassionate educational message.

Dao Van Hoang’s artistic journey has taken him to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, Central Africa, and South America. Immersed in nature, he has lived among wild animals, capturing their essence in his paintings. These encounters, portrayed in his artworks, emphasize the equality and shared environment between humans and animals. There is no sense of violence or dominance; rather, a harmonious coexistence.

On the other hand, Jeet Dzung focuses on the discovery and restoration of wild animals’ inherent freedom, which has been taken away by humans. The artwork and illustrations in his book titled “Saving H’Non: Chang and the Elephant” brilliantly describe this journey.

Through this exhibition, visitors will be transported into a magnificent and enigmatic universe that is yet to be fully explored by humankind. By admiring the artworks and delving into the artists’ diaries, viewers will develop a closer and more romantic connection with the wonders of nature.

Moreover, this exhibition aims to raise awareness about the lesser-known profession of wildlife conservation in Vietnam. Viewers will gain a new perspective on the approaches and methods used by artists engaged in this subject, highlighting the distinctions between traditional painters, scientific illustrators, and comic creators/graphic novelists.

The exhibition is open daily at the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE) in Quy Nhon City, Binh Dinh province. Reservations are required to visit.
