The exhibition titled “Colours of Vietnam” is part of Vietnam Days in the UK to celebrate 50 years of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and the UK.

Painter Nguyen Minh Son expressed his hope that the event would offer Vietnamese artists the opportunity to showcase their local landscapes, culture, and daily life to art enthusiasts in the UK, thus providing a platform for the two countries to strengthen their cultural connection.

Sharing this perspective, Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK Nguyen Hoang Long emphasized the importance of cultural exchanges as an ideal way to foster people-to-people diplomacy between the two countries. He suggested that the exhibition will provide British friends with an insight into a young, dynamic, modern, and developed Vietnam.

The Vietnamese Embassy in the UK is set to host a series of events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of bilateral diplomacy between the two countries this year. These events will cover a range of topics, including politics, economics, trade, education, tourism, and culture. The celebrations will take place in various locations across the UK.

“Colours of Vietnam” is the second exhibition in London presented by Vietnamese artists at D-Contemporary following the successful solo exhibition “Big World, Little Eyes” by local young painter Xeo Chu, which was held last year. This new exhibition will present a kaleidoscope of vibrant, culturally-rich artworks and will provide a unique insight into the culture of Vietnam. Visitors can expect to explore a range of different mediums, such as painting, sculpture, photography and more, to gain a deeper understanding of the vibrant culture of the country. Through this exhibition, D-Contemporary aims to bring the vibrancy of Vietnam to the UK, allowing visitors to gain a unique insight into the culture and people of this fascinating nation.

The exhibition is scheduled to take place from now until April 7.
