Ambassador of Vietnam presents credentials in Botswana

24 November 2017

H.E Vu Van Dzung, Ambassador of Vietnam to South Africa presented his credentials to H.E. Lieutenant General President Seretse Ian Khama of Botswana on 9 November 2017. He also presented President Khama with a painting by a renowned Vietnamese artist.

On 13 November 2017 Nguyen Minh Son, a Vietnamese artist held an exhibition of his paintings at the Embassy of Vietnam in Pretoria.  He was born in 1971 in Bac Ninh Province a famous cultural province in Vietnam. His childhood memories of pagodas, village temples, old houses, lotus ponds, bales of straw, riding buffalo, playing a flute, having a bath in a lotus pond greatly influenced his paintings.

 

 

Nguyen Minh Son was trained at the Hanoi Fine Art College and he uses strong colors and broad strokes to create pices that have a mesmerizing quality.

About the exhibition Nguyen Minh Son said, "At this exhibition, I wish to mostly introduce the beauty of Ha Noi Old Quarter, Hoi An ancient Town. I would like to especially introduce the extraordinary beauty of the North West Vietnam, containing the natural values and the simplicity. But, its simplicity makes true inspiration for the artist to paint. I really want to bring the natural landscape beauty of Vietnam to the friends in the world."

The exhibition was attended by members of the diplomatic community.
