Vietnam spotlighted in works of overseas artist

Eighty-two year old artist Do Danh Than has not lived in Vietnam for over 60 years, but memories of his homeland still remain fresh in his mind. Recently, he launched an exhibition of his paintings at the Vietnamese Cultural Centre in Paris, France on November 20. His paintings portray daily life in Vietnam and include a garden, bamboo, areca trees, betel gardens and water tanks. His wide variety of paintings are to express his desire to preserve Vietnam’s unique traditional culture and introduce it to international friends. “Through my paintings, I hope to prove that overseas Vietnamese are always bound to their homeland and strive to build a peaceful and prosperous country”, he said. His paintings are diverse in content, form, manner of expression and colour, but all show the artist’s desire to preserve Vietnamese culture and allow French people and other international friends to understand Vietnam’s culture and uniqueness. “I nurtured these themes in my works since my childhood”, the artist shared. Living in France, Nguyen Danh Than is always keen for information on Vietnam from the media or his friends. “I feel happy and proud of Vietnam’s success and integration with the world and these achievements are due to the leading role played by the Vietnamese Party, State, Government and people”, he added.
