The 130 paintings exhibited at the Nha Trang Sea Festival from June 6 - 12 stem from more than two dozen painters that include both top level people’s artists and merited artists such as North Korea’s best and most famous pencil painter, Prof. Han Gyong Bo, and younger talents such as the 24 year-old painter Han Song Il who won, among other things, the first prize at a fine arts exhibition in India. The exhibition includes a representative variety of beautiful Korean style paintings, prints, watercolour paintings, pencil drawings, Korean jewel-powdered paintings and oil paintings.
