Painter Luong Xuan Doan, chairman of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association said: “Each period and generation has new contributions to product creation, which is not only to share a design or a creative idea, but it becomes a daily product, and that is the highest goal of Vietnam applied arts in this century. Through the products showcased at the exhibition, it can be seen that traditional elements always go parallel with the contemporary value, to create new values for Vietnamese culture.”
