Carved Artwork project: the memorable artworks of the Graphic Design students of course 25

(VLU06/7/2021– In the second semester of AY 2020 – 2021, the Graphic Design students of course 25 had the Carved Artwork project, in which they had to create a product themselves. Although they met many difficulties working on the project at home during the social distancing, the Graphic Design students of course 25 had outstandingly completed more than 400 artworks as informed by the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design.

Carved Artwork is a specific art of carving of Vietnam’s Fine Arts and a characteristic course of the Graphic Design major at Van Lang University. The Carved Artwork project for Graphic Design students of course 25 took place under the guidance of several lecturers, including MA. Do Thi Cam Nhung, MA. Tran Van Thi, MA. Ca Le Dung, MA. Ho Dang Bach Ly, MA. Dang Hong Van, Lecturer Phan Thi Thanh Yen, and Lecturer Nguyen Quoc Nam.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year was the second year, which the Carved Artwork project was carried out online, and the products were made at home. Overcoming the difficulties, the lecturers and students of Van Lang University had achieved great success. Most of the submitted artworks satisfied the evaluated requirements and criteria.

Tran Huyen Tran (Graphic Design student of course 25) said: “When I work on this project, I made quite some mistakes. My instructor advised me to use glue to fix those flaws, yet I kept failing after the second try, and the glue was detached when I colored the artwork. To save time drying the glue, I tried to use the resin pieces to cover the flaws. It dried faster for my next works, and I had no problems since then.”

MA. Ho Dang Bach Ly – the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design lecturer, evaluated this year’s artworks: “Although the project had many setbacks because of the pandemic outbreak, the social distancing and the slack of materials, the students remained persistent and hardworking. All artworks received great applause from Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Nghia Phuong – Dean of Graphic Design Faculty at the Vietnam University of Fine Arts for their senses of fine arts.”

The students might choose various themes such as sceneries, objects, animals and insects, plants, human or daily lives in the Carved Artwork project. While working on the project, the students were free to design from their point of view to create refined artworks. Some of the works received high evaluation from the lecturers in the last Carved Artwork project of course 25 students is as follows:

“Sleeping Cicada Fairy” Artwork – Phan Dang Huong Ngan

Although only the male cicadas could make such unique chirps, the female ones also have their significance. Portraying the image of a sleeping cicada fairy, Huong Ngan used pointy details on the outfit and the sharp lines to create impactful artwork. The flowers and vines around the cicada fairy’s legs represented the strong bond between nature and insects. In other words, nature is the biological clock of this small yet powerful creature.
