Israeli painter's exhibition spotlights beauty of Vietnam

  •  Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Paintings by French-Israeli artist Jennifer Amouyal are being showcased at the “Wanderlust” exhibition that opened on October 26 in Hanoi Café in Tel Aviv downtown.

Amouyal said that after one month travelling through Vietnam three years ago, she was deeply impressed by the culture and people of Vietnam, especially the H’mong ethnic minority people in the northern province of Lao Cai.

Co-hosted by the painter and the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel, the exhibition introduced paintings featuring Vietnamese landscapes such as Ha Long Bay, and the beauty of rural workers and H’Mong women in their traditional costumes.

Amouyal said that she will use parts of money from selling the paintings to buy books for Vietnamese children and support poor women in Lao Cai. She also expressed her hope to soon visit Vietnam again.
