From 1950 onwards, the range of artwork became so varied and individualised. There were many artists, students and volunteers who were involved in the production of the poster art meaning that they were many different styles, designs and motifs used.
The artwork took inspiration from many art forms. In fact, the School of Fine Arts in Hanoi selected students to go to the Soviet Union (USSR) to study Russian propaganda art. In some pieces, you can see the Russian influence, but Vietnamese art truly had its own style and flourished as art and propaganda. All of the posters were bright and bold, and each was a personal drawing and an expression of the artist’s individual style. In all of the paintings, the objective was clear: to help the viewer empathise through realism.
