Like lotus leaf painting, bodhi leaf painting, cloth painting…melaleuca bark painting always requires high sophistication and meticulousness from the maker.
Not a professional but fond of painting, Mr Nhan took advantage of things that were considered waste such as dried coconut fibres, banana peels and especially the bark of the cajuput tree to create paintings with bold cultural beauty. Describe the life of the people in An Minh District in full color.
Over the past 15 years, Mr. Nhan has created more than 2,000 paintings and sold them domestically and internationally. State agencies also order gifts for foreign ambassadors when Kien Giang visits and works with them.
Each painting sold is an opportunity for Mr. Nhan to promote the beauty of the culture, people as well as nature in this remote An Minh region to domestic and foreign friends.
