A group of Vietnamese artists attended the 2016 Malaysia Art Expo last week, seeking to promote their country’s lacquer paintings.

They took large lacquer works by contemporary artists Trần Phi Trương, Ngô Hải Yến, Hiền Nguyên, Nguyễn Đức Việt and Vũ Tuấn Dũng on themes like daily life in modern Việt Nam.

According to Vũ Tuấn Anh, director of Viet Art Space and a Vietnamese representative to the event, it is the first time that Việt Nam has participated in the art expo in Malaysia.

Việt Nam’s lacquer works have been researched and collected, but not many people know about the genre, he said.
