QUẢNG NAM — Artists from Singapore Technology and Design University, Việt Nam’s Fine Arts Association, colleges in Hà Nội and local painters are collaborating on a coracle painting for an exhibition in Quảng Nam province’s Tam Thanh fishing village.

The team took its inspiration from daily life in the fishing village, using watercolour to depict locals on bumper fishing trip, weaving nets, making bamboo baskets.

The exhibit will open along the village’s coastline this June.

Last year, the village, 10km away from Quảng Nam Province’s Tam Kỳ City, attracted thousands of tourists with its murals project in Trung Thanh hamlet.

The village was decorated with colourful murals on the moss-covered walls under the Korea Foundation Community Art Exchange Programme, with  participation from five artists from South Korea and 12 volunteers.

Artists turned the old walls of 100 houses in the village to colourful murals, depicting portraits of villagers,local scenes and regional panoramas.

The village also lured photographers from South Korea, the Philippines and Turkey to take photos for an exhibition in Seoul and other cities.  — VNS
