NDO – As many as 126 paintings, which were created by 44 painters during the social distancing period of Covid-19 prevention and control, were introduced to the public at an exhibition in Hanoi on June 15.

The exhibition, entitled “Paintings in social distancing season”, was held by the Monthly Publication of Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper in collaboration with Vietnam Fine Arts Association, as part of the activities marking the 95th anniversary of Vietnam Revolutionary Press Day (June 21).

During the difficult time in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic, the fine arts sector launched many practical activities, joining hands with the Party, State and the whole society to prevent and control the epidemic.

In response to the Nhan Dan Monthly Department and Vietnam Fine Arts Association, 44 painters, who have been the publication’s collaborators for many years, created paintings highlighting the period when the whole community complied with social distancing orders.

They contributed significantly to encouraging all people to make their best effort to overcome and push back the pandemic.

The messages of the values of the happiness, humanity and the family connection as well as changes in the people’s behaviour in line with the Earth to minimise the impacts of climate change’s are conveyed through the exhibits.

The displayed paintings were also printed into a book with the same title, contributing to spreading the humanistic message as well as the optimistic and positive perspectives evident during this unforgettable period for the country.
