The exhibition will present the Folk Paintings Hoodie Collection of folk art prints on daily-life objects. It is the result of collaboration between TiredCity, a company specialising in distributing exclusive artworks from Vietnam’s prominent young artists, and young artist Nguyen Xuan Lam, author of the illustration collection Ve Lai Tranh Dan Gian (Redraw folk paintings), which she recreated with graphic techniques.

The Folk Paintings Hoodie Collection will present unisex hoodies which are printed with folk paintings of Ngu Ho (Five Tigers), Thanh Giong (St. Giong), and Chim Hac (The Crane). The exhibition also will showcase several other art prints on daily-life objects, including notebook, tote bag, T-shirt and postcard.

The free-entry event will start at 2pm. IAcA Café is on the second floor at 24-26 Ly Quoc Su Street, Hanoi.
