The exhibition features 13 abstract acrylic paintings by the artist, which include Mien Tinh (Tranquility), Mien Gian (Fury), Mien Chon (Choice) and Mien Dich (Destination). 

“At each exhibition where I had the opportunity to interact with the audience, I would tell them not to ask, and instead guess what I had painted. Abstract painting is not about a house and a tree, it is all about feelings. It is a world of images that an artist creates,” Thang said. 

“In this series of six exhibitions (of which Serenity is the first), the number of paintings featured are expected to be a collection of 10 years’ worth of work. But for me, it takes nine years to arrive at a concept worth pursuing. By early 2017, I started painting. For several nights, I stayed awake, working on 10 paintings simultaneously. There were times while I was painting that I ran out of colour, which was very irritating,” Thang said.

Tran Nhat Thang, born in 1972, studied at the Viet Nam Fine Arts University. From 1995 to 2009, he held 10 individual exhibitions and also participated in another 100 group exhibitions. His works focus mainly on oriental abstract art.

The Serenity exhibition is on until August 13.
