An exhibition of "Paintings on Dó paper" featuring beautiful landscapes in Vietnam has opened at the Korean Cultural Center in Hanoi.

The exhibition displays 36 works on dó paper by artist Dang Tin Tuong, 61, featuring Ha Long Bay and Sapa, two of Vietnam's most popular tourist attractions.

Dó is a traditional paper made from the bark of the rhamnoneuron balansae tree in the north of the country. Thanks to its durability, the paper was traditionally used to make books, paintings, and documents.

Keum Gi Hyung, director of Korean Cultural Center, said, "Dang Tin Tuong's artwork portrays the beauty of both nature and the Vietnamese people. In his work, we can see a soul with a strong passion for art and a desire to express beauty in the simplest of things."

The exhibition will remain open until March 31.
