A loyal fan of the Japanese hina dolls and deeply inspired by the innocence and purity of children's world, Tran Thu Hang has developed a career that hardly any others think of in Vietnam - a doll artist. Though newly emerged, she was extremely well received, not only by arts professionals but also by parents who would like to have their beloved children doll-ed after.
The upcoming exhibition, named "Silent Voices", is organized by the Japan Cultural Exchange Center and as a part of the Young Talent Series, which seeks to give more stage to young innovative Vietnamese artists. 12 art works made between 2007 and 2009 will be showcased along with 8 other pieces reflecting the fusion of Vietnamese-Japanese culture, all by Tran Thu Hang.
The exhibition takes place from September 22nd until October 7th at 27 Quang Trung Street, Hanoi and a must-visit especially for families travelling with children.
