Project idea NORTHERN soil is shaped from the summer of 2018. Initially, NORTHERN soil It is merely a painting project introducing tourist destinations.

From a friend Ngo Thuy Duyen, a young artist participating in the project
I am very happy to be able to join so many other talented friends and artists to make this series of paintings, especially drawing on Dien Bien – where I grew up.
When I received the topic, it was the first time in my life that I knew that Dien Bien had a craft village. I have been plowing all night to pay the deadline. Mr. Vinh Vuong once encouraged “I can only participate in this whole province, fightingé ”.
After the project, I gained a lot more knowledge about Dien Bien culture, which I was quite careless and confident that I already know very well. Hopefully this collection will help not only other people in other regions but also people living and working in their homeland to know more about Dien Bien.
