Visiting the exhibition, Marianie Morazzani told VNA that the exhibition left a good impression on Vietnamese art, which was very new to her. She shared that she had never been to Vietnam, but the paintings depicting the beauty of nature in colorful colors made her feel like she was traveling to this country and helped her feel the souls of the artists.

“Colours of Vietnam” is the second exhibition put on by Vietnamese artists at D-Contemporary after the solo exhibition “Big World, Little Eyes” in English, was held by local young painter Xeo Chu held in London last year.

The exhibition is scheduled to run through to April 7.
