Hanoi Book Street is currently hosting an exhibition known as “Be the change” which features a number of displays of items made from plastic waste.
Following a year long hiatus, the Davines Art Series has returned for this year in a much larger scale and has so far attracted plenty of visitors.
A puppetry character by artist Do Hiep made out of an array of colourful straws.
The straws have been collected from coffee shops throughout Hanoi.
At first, the character was 1.9 metres in height, but due to being exhibited at the unique event, the artist increased the height to 3.5 metres.
A bespoke piece created by artist Pham Tran Quan depicts a person who is tired of plastic pollution.
The artwork has been created by filling the outline of a person with plastic waste such as straws, nylon bags, and plastic bottles.
A floral arrangement by artists Flinh and Dang Thuy Anh sends a message to viewers of the need to live green and protect the earth.
Each plant contains a message on environmental protection.
The pots which contain the trees have been collected from beauty salons and had previously been used to contain hair.
A large number of young people have been attending the exhibition since its opening.
Foreign visitors also show a keen interest in the captivating artworks on show.
The event is scheduled to last until November 17.
