Vietnamese artists paint to celebrate life, their love for people and nature. Their paintings are a symphony of colour, which is full of life and movement. They are steeped in romance, serenity and grace. There is a fusion of East (traditional) and West (modern) thus making them both familiar and mysterious at the same time.

While European oil painting technique was introduced into Vietnam in early 20th century by the French, lacquer painting is something distinctively Vietnamese. It is created on wood, covered with several layers of lacquer. Artists apply different materials such as ashes from plants, crushed eggshells, gold and silver to beautify their works. There is a lot of sanding and polishing involved, and the entire process requires careful attention and patience. The result is a translucent painting with magnificent light and texture. Today only a small number of master lacquer artists can reach the harmony and perfection in their paintings.

Our artists’ works have been enthusiastically collected by art lovers around the world, including Bill Clinton, Bill Gates and Prince Andrew. Artworks displayed in “Treasures of Vietnam” exhibition are carefully chosen and curated by Hanoi Art House UK, coming out to shine from the land of hidden charm.
