Paintings of Hanoi's peach blossoms
By Tuan Minh 15:16, 2014/01/21
Paintings of Hanoi`s peach blossoms, the symbolic Tet flower of the North, by Nguyen Huu Khoa are being displayed at an exhibition called Dao Xuan (Spring Peach Blossoms) on January 20.

The oil paintings attempt to capture the colours and shapes of the peach blossoms. Nguyen Huu Khoa, is from the peach village of Phu Thuong, Tay Ho District, and his work is an attempt to render his perspective of the flowers' beauty.

Khoa has been growing peach trees since he was small at the family orchard. At first, he had no real interest in the trees, but as started painting, the beauty of peach blossoms grew on him. Khoa now has a large collection of peach blossom paintings.

The exhibition will feature 32 paintings, most of which were completed in 2013.
