The annual art exhibition entitled “Art In The Forest”, organized by Flamingo Dai Lai Resort in northern Vinh Phuc province, is back in 2018 with a new spirit and youthful energy. Most of the artists participating in the program were born during the 1980s or 1990s. While quite new, they are gradually asserting themselves in Vietnam’s art scene and include Tran Thuoc, Ta Duy, Le Minh Tung, Nguyen Thi Hoang Minh, Nguyen Xuan Luc, Trieu Minh Hai, Hoang Mai Thiep, and Hoang Duy Vang. Spending months living and working in the resort during 2017, the young artists were given maximum creative freedom to create their artworks, which promise to be a breakthrough not only at the exhibition but also in their careers.

Joining the young artists at this fourth “Art In The Forest” exhibition is invited guest-artist and renowned sculptor Tran Hoang Co, born in 1961. Mr. Co brings to the exhibition a magnificent sculpture called “Primary Forest”.

“Art In The Forest is a chance for my 25-year dream to unfold,” he said. “I have personally followed this special art exhibition for many years and recognize it is located in a marvelous space displaying well-executed artworks. The artworks demonstrate the output and quality of the artists participating, which have a great influence on the art-loving public.”

The exhibition has been held since 2014, with the participation of dozens of Vietnamese and international artists. More than 50 paintings and sculptures are now on display in the five-star resort, by the banks of Dai Lai Lake, in a studio built from containers, and on the roads within the pine forest. These beautiful sculptures are in harmony with the lush green architecture of the resort, creating a marvelous natural scene. Each of these works has its own message and showcases the talent of the artist.

Flamingo’s investment is a pioneering step in artistic development and raises the profile of artists. Nearly a hundred artists have taken part in the long-term sustainable art project. “With the desire to create true artworks, over the next ten years there will be the biggest outdoor sculpture museum and a giant exhibition space at Dai Lai,” said artist Vu Hong Nguyen, Co-founder of “Art In The Forest”.
