Traditional Vietnamese Art Through The Eyes Of The World Beauty Queen © Hoang Mi

Traditional Vietnamese art has a very long and rich history, which is going back as far as 10,000 years to the times of the Stone Age. Starting in the 2nd century BC, Vietnam fell under the millennium of Chinese domination, which deeply influenced Vietnamese arts and culture and we can see that influence continued and started to really flourish after the independence from China in the 10th century AD and through the centuries. Beginning in the 1860s and until the 1970s, was a period in Vietnamese history that brought strong influence of French art under colonial rule.

Despite such heavy impact from various foreign powers, Vietnamese art preserved and retained its unique and distinctive character and style, especially the art of silk painting, which has been a big part of Vietnamese culture for ages.

The artistry of the silk painting was developed by ancient artisans and craftsmen, and was passed from generation to generation to the modern times. It became a true national heritage and has gone through many changes in the content, advances in techniques, and the processing of light and color.

Hana Hanh Tran, a Seattle based, Vietnamese born artist and couture designer, a founder of Hanino Creations brand, continues traditions of silk painting and national costumes in her gowns, which includes not only hand painted art, but also embroidery and beading details.
