HÀ NỘI(VNS) – An exhibition entitled "People – Photos on Old-Time Newspapers" was launched yesterday to celebrate 65 years of the first publication of Nhân Dân (People) newspaper.
The exhibition was attended by Võ Văn Thưởng, a member of the Politburo.
More than 21 painters and illustrators, who joined hands in creating the face of Việt Nam contemporary arts, such as Đặng Xuân Hòa, Hồng Việt Dũng, Thành Chương, and Lê Thanh Sơn, in addition to Lê Thiết Cương, Nguyễn Thị Hiền, and Nguyễn Thị Hồng Phương, also presented their works at the exhibition.
Most of the artists, who have emerged through their dedication for contributing, illustrating and beautifying the monthly Nhân Dân, had their works and unique personalities expressed in each photo, and surprised the audience.
The meticulous trio of painters such as Lê Thanh Sơn, whose radiant and vivid style of art is adored by art lovers; Phạm Luận, who usually paints pictures that exhibit warmth, and Đặng Xuân Hòa, who created a big sunflower with old newspapers, created a strong impression on viewers.
Vi Kiến Thành, director of the Arts, Photography and Exhibition Department of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said the exhibition was a unique event replete with meaning.
“Works of art displayed here were made with cheap materials such as old newspapers but created amazing and priceless social impact. The lives from each paper, articles and old memories will be prolonged after this exhibition,” Thành added. – VNS
