A benefit exhibition featuring Le Thanh Son, a well-known Impressionist-style painter from Vietnam putting on his first solo show in Japan, will be held in Tokyo from April 13 to 18. The 45-year-old artist is renowned for his use of bright colors in re-creating the intimate atmospheres of villages around Hanoi.
Twenty of his large works will be shown. The exhibition, being staged on the 20th-floor gallery space of Shinsei Bank in Uchisaiwai-cho, Chiyoda Ward, is free. Sales from the show will benefit such charities and initiatives as Tokyo English Lifeline (TELL), Second Harvest Japan, Hands on Tokyo and Room to Read.
