HA NOI (VNS)  — An exhibition inspired by stamps in Ha Noi has been showcasing 40 paintings by Hoang Thuy Lieu, who once worked at the Viet Nam Post.

The painter created these paintings based on stamps issued by the Viet Nam Post. Each stamp is a work of art that she has enlarged, allowing viewers to enjoy the stories therein in a different way.

"Each tiny stamp contains information on remarkable cultural, historical events," Lieu said. "Thus, stamps can tell many stories of the past."

The exhibition also introduced the stamp collections of Vu Van Ty, former director of Viet Nam Stamps Company, who also wanted to share his knowledge of stamps with people.

The exhibition will run until tomorrow at the Exhibition House, 45 Trang Tien Street, Ha Noi. — VNS
