A Glimpse of Thang Long – One Thousand Year PDF Print E-mail
In this special exhibition at Melia Hanoi, international artist Van Duong Thanh welcomes the New Year 2010 of the Tiger and the celebrations of the capital Thang Long’s 1000-year history.

With thirty abstract paintings, oil and acrylic on canvas, the artist focus on the architectures, atmosphere and images of an old tranquil Hanoi in the past as well as the busy city scenes of the present. During the Lunar New Year - Tet, street scenes, such as the peach flower markets, are bustling with people and movements. Hanoians go shopping for Tet, in the background is the blue sky and drops of sunlight reflect on the pavements. Bamboo curtains hang on the balconies evoke memories and nostalgia of Thanh’s childhood. Spring, with its light rain, brings a special atmosphere, colors and awakens nature, people and the city. All this is vividly portrayed in the artist’s paintings with strong brush strokes and streams of resplendent colors. During the two months of the exhibition, Van Duong Thanh will continuously implement her new paintings to the collection for its constant excitement.
