"Journey Through Tradition: A Celebration of Chinese Icons" transports visitors to a realm where time-honoured Chinese traditions and iconic motifs unfold on canvas, weaving a vibrant tapestry of nostalgia and cultural resonance. The exhibition pays homage to China's rich heritage, spotlighting the allure of traditional painting and the enduring elements found in Chinese homes.

Within the exhibition, visitors will encounter vivid depictions of cherished symbols such as the Mandarin duck, a timeless emblem of love, and elegant cranes, guardians of longevity, immortality, and wisdom. The artistry extends to a display of vases and urns, capturing the essence of Chinese design and craftsmanship.

The exhibition's timing is particularly auspicious, aligning with the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Dragon. This mythical creature, symbolizing strength and transformation, takes centre stage in Van Lam's showcase, emphasizing the connection between the past and present.

The exhibition seamlessly blends heritage and innovation, weaving a tapestry that connects the cherished past with the vibrant aspirations of today.
