The event, held every four years, aims to enhance understanding and solidarity among ASEAN states and offers a chance for painters in the region to meet and share their achievements, while introducing their countries, people and cultures to others.

On display are 117 works of 84 painters from 10 ASEAN member nations. They were selected from entries sent to the third ASEAN Graphic Arts Competition.

The entries were submitted in 2017 and include embossed prints, concave prints, flat prints, collagraphs, multidimensional prints, gum prints and digital prints.

The works reflect the landscapes and life in ASEAN countries while also highlighting urgent and contemporary issues relevant to the bloc’s members.

Earlier, in February 2020, the Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition and the International Cooperation Department under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, in coordination with the Vietnamese Embassies in ASEAN countries and the Embassies of ASEAN countries in Vietnam, launched the third ASEAN Graphic Arts Competition and Exhibition in Hanoi.
