BANGKOK — An on-going exhibition in Bangkok is featuring paintings of Vietnamese architecture by four Thai artists.
The artists, Thirasak Wongcumnan, Somyos Kumsang, Suwit Jaipom and Direk Kingnok, have selected about 180 paintings to exhibit after travelling through Viet Nam.
The pieces feature many beautiful ancient Vietnamese sites as well as typical characteristics of daily life in different regions.
Thirasak's paintings are distinct because she used pens to portray HCM City's landscapes like Ben Thanh Market and Duc Ba (Notre Dame) Cathedral, and the Perfume River in Hue.
A highlight of the exhibition is a large painting by artist Suwit who combines images of Ha Noi's old architecture, such as the Thang Long Citadel, One-Pillar Pagoda and Temple of Literature, with new buildings.
