The mossy walls of old apartment buildings in HCM City have been painted with giant murals as part of the Saigon Urban Arts 2021 project .

The international project organised by French Institute in Vietnam and Goethe Institute in HCM City aims to honour the beauty of street art.

Through the paintings, audiences can understand more about the value of art and how it can beautify the city and connect people. Five street artists from HCM City , including Daos, Suby, Daes, Cresk and Kleur, have worked on the murals at Apartment 1A and 1B on Nguyen Dinh Chieu street and at an old villa at 48 Nguyen Dinh Chieu street in District 1. Ward authority and residents living in the buildings allowed the painters to cover the walls.

The artists applied a new layer of paint to replace the old, mossy walls of the buildings. They also used cranes over 20m high to sketch the main details of the painting. All of the artworks reflect the United Nations' sustainable development goals.
