This is a place to create opportunities for the people of the city, especially the young ones to meet, exchange, learn and chat about culture with visitors, researchers, artists, students, and traders, etc., from countries around the world. This is an address for culturally enlightening exchange in an atmosphere of equality and commonality.

The exhibition introduces to the viewers the art works of artist Bui Thanh Tam, which are created from the tradition and folk painting materials, showing the sublimation of the contemporary art from the tradition.

In each paintings named “Mat Phat” ("The Buddha’s Face"), “Coi nhan gian” ("The Human Realm"), “Vu tru” (“The Universe"), “Xu An Nam” ("The An Nam territory"), “Yeu” ("Love"), “Vuon xuan” ("The Spring Garden"), etc., viewers can recognize the beauty from colors created by the hands of creation. There, all dimensions of time and space just disappear, and leaving nothing behind but the cosmic joys to flourish, where aesthetics and art become an endless passion.

Artist Bui Thanh Tam was born and raised in Thai Binh Province. He graduated from Vietnam Fine Arts University. His drawings are mainly created on flat paintings, with political and critical characteristics on social issues taking place every day in Vietnam and around the world. The message in his art works is often conveyed through the actions and attitudes of human-like characters, and dressing in Asian-inspired costumes.

Bui Thanh Tam's art works are often exhibited widely in Vietnam, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, as well as private museums in Germany and European countries; and also, are present in many collections in Asia, Switzerland, Netherlands, the UK, France, the USA, and Canada.
