Vietamese artists are gaining popularity in Dubai as their works are being accumulated by many important art galleries in Dubai. Compared to Chinese, Indian or Japanese art, which are also very popular in Dubai, Vietnamese art comes cheaper and some of the best artists in Vietnam like Pham Luan and Nugyen Than Binh remain available at their shows to interact with buyers as and when required.
Chinese art is full of rhetoric and is very political, difficult for people to appreciate unless one is aware about Chinese socio-political milieu. Japanese art these days are getting dependant on mechanical manufacturing and in Dubai people still prefer hand made art works. Vietnamese artists produce mostly paintings by hand. They are often serene, colourful and beautiful. Socio-political issues of Vietnam even if portrayed, they enter mildly and the paintings still offer themselves to unobtrusive viewing pleasure. That is why Vietnamese art attracts the international viewers more easily.
Red Gallery, Dubai had recently held a show of art works from Vietnam. The gallery showcased works by many internationally acclaimed as well as young upcoming artists from Vietnam such as Le Thiet Cuong, Le Thanh Son, Hong Viet Dung, Bui Huu Hung, Thanh Chuong, Dinh Quan, Vu Dien, Le The Anh and Ly Tran Quynh Giang.
