Vietnamese artist Pham Huy Thong's solo exhibition will open at the Ernst & Young Office in Singapore on January 10.

Titled Strange Dreams, the exhibition will feature works that emphasize the artist's commitment to social commentary.

A press release says Thong's works "encapsulate a political agenda by utilizing an ability to communicate through his artistic activity in the manner of "artivism" (combination of "art" and "activism").

It quotes Thong as saying, "I often wonder whether art has to reflect eternity. However, I believe if art can make observations on social progress and uphold facts witnessed by the community at large, then that art will certainly pass the boundary of time and endure history."

The 1981-born Thong graduated from Hanoi's University of Industrial Fine Arts in 2004. He worked at many other jobs before becoming an artist.

Thong has previously held solo and group exhibitions in Hanoi, Hue, Malaysia, China, and Japan.

The Ernst & Young office is located on 1, Raffles Quay, North Tower, Level 18, Singapore.
