Woodblocks Artist Win Award

The Vietnamese painter Dinh Luc has returned home from the 2002 Biennial of Asian Illustrations in Hokkaido, Japan with the event's top honour.

Luc, who is now a fine artist at the Hanoi Childen's Palace, earned the excellence award for three illustrations in his collection of seven woodblock paintings.

The works were printed in six colours with a blending of dark and light hues.

The honour was Luc's fourth award so far at the 2002 Biennial of Asian Illustrations Japan. After the bienniale closes, Luc's works will join the other prize winners at exhibitions to be held in Japan's major cities over the next year.
