​13-year-old’s paintings snapped up at solo exhibition

Xeo Chu, 13, sold all 20 paintings he has displayed at a solo exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City. The ‘Flower 2020 - Big World, Little Eyes’ exhibition at Ben Thanh Art gallery and Little Em’s Pre-school in District 1 last weekend featured 20 acrylic on canvas paintings.

"My mother loves flowers, so my living spaces have always been filled with the colors of flowers," the young man who did the paintings during the Covid-19 pandemic and sold all before the solo exhibition ended said.

Karlene Davis, New Zealand consul general and trade commissioner in Vietnam, who bought one of Chu's works at the exhibition, said she admired Chu's passion and the way he created his artworks.

Chu, whose parents are gallery owners in Saigon, has sold a painting for over $150,000.

He hosted his first solo exhibition in the U.S. at the Georges Berges Gallery in New York City in 2019.

Georges Berges, owner of the gallery, is convinced that Chu is a young Jackson Pollock, an American painter and a major 20th-century figure in the abstract expressionist movement.
