The exhibition entitled Transformation, which includes 17 paintings, is part of the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Poland and Viet Nam.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Foreign Minister To Anh Dung thanked Kisiliczyk for her affection for Viet Nam and its people.

According to him, Viet Nam and Poland have had a friendly relationship throughout the 70 years since the two countries established diplomatic relations on February 4, 1950.

Viet Nam is the third-biggest partner of Poland in Southeast Asia while the country is the largest trading partner of Viet Nam in central eastern Europe.

The two countries' two-way trade turnover in 2019 reached nearly US$2 billion.

Dung added that he would co-chair the political consultations between the foreign ministries of Viet Nam and Poland tomorrow, which is also one of the activities to mark the anniversary.

Polish ambassador Wojciech Gerwel emphasised the significance of the celebration, expressing his delight at the opening of Transformation in Ha Noi.

He also expressed his thanks for the support that Viet Nam has given to Polish doctors in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

At her new solo exhibition, painter Kisiliczyk presents her abstract impressions on beautiful Southeast Asia’s nature, particularly of Viet Nam.

"I have fallen deeply in love with the objects or landscapes I am painting,” she said. This is immediately apparent when viewing her rich and evocative images.

Born and educated in Poland, Kisiliczyk completed her master's degree in painting and textile art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, where she enjoyed success at joint and solo exhibitions.

Following that, she lived in London for over a decade to reach a broader audience, establishing herself in one of the world’s most important art markets.

The painter’s deep connection with nature has been an endless and exciting source of inspiration for her art.

Pursuing a passion for travel, she has spent the last few years travelling the world discovering new landscapes and honing her perception of the natural world that inspires her oil paintings and murals.

She is currently living in Viet Nam, which has become a home to her for more than a year now.

Transformation will run until November 19.
