19 paintings by artists from Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) from November 2017.
The contemporary style paintings create a space that connects the city’s heritage with its artistic and community values.
Upon completion, the area will become a pedestrianised street linking to the space of Dong Xuan market,
to create a new highlight among the tourist spaces in Hanoi’s Old Quarter.
The paintings evoke Hanoi’s thousand years of culture, showing a city
which while facing great changes, always preserves its cultural and traditional quintessence.
