Painters display figurative vs. abstractive arts in Thailand

Painter Ho Huu Thu and his son Ho Hong Linh are showcasing their figurative vs. abstractive artworks at an exhibition which opened at Silom Art Gallery in Bangkok on June 15.

On display are 27 paintings, highlighting philosophy of life, the desire for peace, and the romantic beauty of Vietnam and its people.

Ngo Duc Thang, Vietnamese ambassador to Thailand, said figurative and abstractive arts will help viewers have a perfect vision of the hidden charm of Vietnam and its people, especially women.

This is the first time Thu and his son have displayed their works in Thailand.

Thu has won a silver medal at an art competition hosted by ESSO in 1960 and second prize at the Vietnam National Art Contest in 1990.

The gallery will open until July 15.
