Exhibition “King” by Pham Thanh Toan

Craig Thomas Gallery

27i Tran Nhat Duat Street, Tan Dinh Ward, District 1, HCMC

Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 11 am to 6pm; Sundays 12 to 5 pm; and by appointment

Toan’s “King” collection comprises of a bold batch of primarily over-sized canvases with several of the works themselves being quadriptychs and pentaptychs. The effect of such large paintings, often done in luxuriantly thick layers of imported oils, is immediate and visceral. The planning and ambition required to execute works of such magnitude is nothing short of miraculous for a young artist having his first gallery curated solo exhibition. There is a confidence and skill on display in his new work – a complete departure from his previous two collections – that belies Toan’s relatively tender years.

Exhibition “ELLIPSIS”

Toong Minh Khai

126 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Str, Dist 3, Ho Chi Minh City

The “Ellipsis” exhibition is an attempt by 4 image-making artists: Danny Bach, Minh Pham, Dat Vu and Cietisoo Nguyen, to connect and share our personal approaches to photography and image-making with the creative community.
