Study of Traditional Picture

A study of a genre painting with Chinese artistic style, by a child who participated in Vu Dan Tan's workshop in the 1990s.

The traditional pictures that the workshop made reference to were mostly images of tigers, scenes from folklore, or popular woodblock prints of Dong Hon Village that often feature historical figures, popular stories, and scenes of everyday life which bear auspicious meanings.

Apart from producing his own arts, Vu Dan Tan devoted his time in art education as well, sharing his artistic skills with the younger generation. In the early 1990s, he organised workshops in Salon Natasha for children, teaching them to paint, to make masks, and to communicate through drawings. Children who participated in the workshop were mostly relatives or neighbours of Tan.
