Artist Nguyen Minh Son introduces Vietnamese art work to visitors

The event welcomed nearly 100 guests from embassies and agencies of Southeast Asian nations in South Africa, representatives from the South African Department of Arts and Culture, and Vietnamese overseas agencies.

Addressing the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to South Africa Vu Van Dung thanked the organisers of the ASEAN – Africa Trade Fair, the first of its kind, saying that the event presents an opportunity for Vietnamese artist Nguyen Minh Son to introduce Viet Nam’s culture and contemporary fine art.

Mr. Son’s presentation enabled visitors to get an insight into the landscape and people of Viet Nam, including the UNESCO-recognised natural wonder of Ha Long Bay, Nha Trang beach, Ha Noi’s old quarter and Hoi An ancient city, among others.

The work arts displayed at the event were previously showcased at exhibitions in London, Singapore, the US, Hong Kong (China) and the Republic of Korea.

A number of the works were presented to the Embassy of Viet Nam in South Africa. Participants also ate Vietnamese food during the event.
