Exhibition of paintings from pure Vietnamese materials Tin ảnh

(15:22:53 PM 19/05/2014)
( - Twenty-nine artists have held an exhibition of paintings made from Vietnamese paint at the Vietnam Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi.

Son ta, or Vietnamese paint, is a pure Vietnamese material, is used to create the unique art of lacquer. This is a special paint of Vietnam, which is processed from resin. From ancient times, Vietnamese people have combined Vietnamese paint with gold, silver and vermilion to make a special material to paint on the surface of statues, religious items and crafts objects to make them more splendid and durable.

In 1932, artists of the Indochina Fine Arts College began using Vietnamese paint as a material in the painting arts, and they created lacquer art. Today, lacquer art is considered a major achievement of Vietnam’s fine arts.>

To preserve and promote the value of Vietnamese paint and lacquer art, in May 2013 the artists who create lacquer paintings with pure Vietnamese materials established the Son Ta (Vietnamese Paint) group.

Celebrating a year of establishment, this group has organized an exhibition at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum from May 17 through 30. The exhibition features 29 paintings by 29 artists. All works are painted with pure Vietnamese paint.

Raising the net at night by Tran Tuan Long.
