Hung Long Art Gallery – Delve into Vietnamese creativity

A quaint, cheerful town of Vietnam, Hoi An is a world of its own. It was declared a UNESCO World heritage Site, as it presents one of the world’s most perfect preserved South Asian Traiding Ports from the 15th-19th centuries. A place filled with historical delights and idyllic serenity, Hoi An is sure to satisfy every traveller’s culinary, adventurous and holiday need. One of the treasures of this pollution-free town is the Hung Long Art Gallery – a unique treasure house of culture indeed.

The Hung Long Art Gallery showcases a soulful collection of divine paintings that are the work of the famous Nguyen Trung Viet. Located on 105 Nguyen Thai Hoc, Hoi An, Quang Nam, the works display the beauty of timidity in a Vietnamese woman and her true charm through the painting of her inner soul.
A widely acclaimed collection of art, Nguyen Trung Viet’s paintings have been displayed in exhibitions in America, Britain, France, Spain, Australia and Switzerland. His work has also won the Vietnam Arts and Letters awards, which add further credibility to this tranquil yet mesmerising collection. The unique texture of the paintings is brought about through the use of eggshells and lacquer where the surface is scraped down till it’s just right.

These lacquer-works can be shipped anywhere around the world and come at affordable prices that will make great souvenirs. Apart from these paintings, the gallery displays several surreal works of art by other artists. These paintings are a combination of sun and wind and display emotion as well as the timelessness of land, a depiction of the artists’ colourful lives. When you leave the Hung Long Art Gallery, you will take back with you a part of the rich heritage of Hoi An, and the essence of simple yet magnificent artwork.

Enjoy the Hung Long Art Gallery while you stay at a quality Hoi An Spa Resort in the area, which provides the perfect blend of poetic tranquility and luxurious comfort. The Anantara Hoi An Resort is one option of an elegant Hoi An Hotel that will pamper your senses and soothe your soul for a perfect retreat after some time spent exploring the cultural treasures of this most timeless of Vietnamese cities.
