Caricature Art Show
by Mai's Gallery
Location: Mai's Gallery
Date: 1 Jan - 1 Jan 1970

Hi Hoa 2 (Caricatures 2) is the second exhibition of Khoa’s caricatures featuring 25 portraits of celebrities in Vietnam drawn by the artist, whose stylistic distortions create an innovative depiction of renown Vietnamese artists.

Visitors will be amazed upon viewing popular celebrities – from the late musicians Van Cao and Trinh Cong Son to current figures like singer Ngoc Khue, director Vu Ngoc Dang, and stage actor Thanh Loc – from a different perspective
Khoa said caricature is meant to alter the essence of the subject while retaining particular characteristics to engender a sense of twisted familiarity.

The unique showcase runs until February 21.
Nguyen Huu Khoa, born in 1973 in Hanoi, is a famous caricaturist with pseudonyms Com and Khoai.

He is currently working with 20 Vietnamese and foreign newspapers, as well as 14 NGOs in Vietnam.
The first Hi Hoa exhibition in 2006 was a big success paving the way for this year’s show.

Mai’s Gallery is located at 16 Nguyen Hue Boulevard, District 1, HCMC.
