E-mail Print PDF



Hanoi has many shops where painted copies of famous painters.

You can also get a painting made after a photograph, or paint yourself into a famous picture.


Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, they are all here.

In the little Hang Hanh street near Hoan kiem Lake middle of Hanoi, there are several garages where mass produced copies of famous pictures.

Many painters are very talented and the finished copies similar to the original.

You can also have painted a picture after a rest kent any photograph. I have even seen a picture where the purchaser was painted with a known image. 


It is not only in Hang Hanh street there are shops. Around the 36 streets Hanois old town, many dealers.

I do not know the legality of it is happening but one is completely safe, local authorities have no worries.
