More than 80 artists from Hanoi are presenting their works at the Tet Art Fair that is underway in the city.

The fair features 350 artworks created from different materials, including lacquer, oil on canvas, woodblock, watercolour, ceramics and sculpture.

According to painter Trinh Minh Tien, the fair's founder, the event aims to revive the old habit of buying paintings to decorate houses during the Lunar New Year holidays.

The event is also a chance for art lovers to get close to art by "offering works at reasonable prices".

"None of the pieces cost more than 20 million VND (950 USD)," he said.

Discussions with famous painters such as Tran Huy Oanh, Le Huy Tiep, Le Thiet Cuong and Trinh Tuan will be hosted at the fair, and workshops on woodblock and watercolour techniques are also on the agenda.

The Tet Art Fair is taking place on the third floor of Hang Da Galleria Market until February 15.-VNA
