'The Voyage to Freedom,' the second abstract painting exhibition by William Pham, welcomed many art lovers in Ho Chi Minh City, professional collectors and business people from Japan, Germany and the U.S. wtih its unique concepts and colors.

The event, which took place at Ngo Art Gallery in Thao Dien Ward in Thu Duc City from December 16-31, 2021, was attended by Vietnamese Ambassador to Israel Ly Duc Trung, who is on a weeklong working trip in Ho Chi Minh City and some southern localities before presenting credentials to the Israeli president in April.

The ambassador visited the gallery last weekend, where he and painter William Pham discussed art subjects that could convey messages on global issues, humanity, environmental protection, and peace.
