VOV.VN - Overseas Vietnamese painter Pham Trong Chanh has recently opened his latest exhibition in France which displays over 40 paintings and sculptures on Vietnamese history, people, culture, and nature.
Chanh's artworks feature the heroic history of the country’s founders known as the Hung Kings, the legend of Saint Giong, and typical cultural characteristics of each Vietnamese region.
Can Van Kiet, former vice president of the General Union of Vietnamese in France (UGVF), said the exhibition is part of a series of community activities in France that have been reactivated after a long hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The exhibition serves to contribute to introducing the talent of overseas Vietnamese to the French public, while simultaneously helping young generations of Vietnamese citizens and international friends gain greater insights into the history, culture, and traditions of Vietnam, Kiet said.
The event opened on May 13 and is expected to run through to May 28.
