EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Streets vendors and street cries of Hanoi”

Institut Français de Hanoi – L’Espace
24 Trang Tien Str, Hanoi

The exhibition presents a collection of sketches, drawings and watercolor paintings created by fifteen students from Indochina College of Fine Arts (now Vietnam University of Fine Arts) and their teacher – Ferdinand de Fénis. They skillfully sketched the small world of street vendors who criss-crossed the streets of the capital city, beginning their day from dawn, with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, sweets and dishes to offer.

A beautiful combination of old-fashioned photos, sound effects and graceful drawings that fill the air with nostalgia
