Wall paintings encourage environment protection in HCM City

(VNF) - Numerous artistic wall paintings on climate change have been painted on ten walls in Ho Chi Minh City, drawing great attention. The designs were selected from 34 entries to a mural art contest ‘City in 2030’.

Participants pose for photo before two mural paintings.

Cities wreathed in a dense pall of black smoke and people wearing gas masks to combat toxic fumes and ashes from coal plants are both impacts of climate change and topics for the mural paintings on walls in districts 1 and 10 in HCM City.

As the theme of the contest, the paintings portray the young artists’ predictions for the southern city in 2030 given escalating climate change, aiming to call for actions to respond to climate change.

This painting delivers a message encouraging the use of renewable energy along with preserving traditional values of the southern city.

The contest followed the success of the artistic wall painting activity on wildlife protection last April. Ten blank old walls have new splendid coats thanks to these young artists. The murals have improved not only the city’s image but also the local’s living space.

The contest, targeting both young Vietnamese and foreigners, aims to offer opportunities for street art lovers to demonstrate their passion through works of their own.

In this way, information, knowledge and messages on climate change and clean and renewable energy will be widely disseminated, making it easier to access.

The winning murals are being painted in districts 1, 7 and 10 in HCM city./.

The wall painting earns the 1st place in Dien Bien Phu Alley, District 10.

Two 2nd place paintings at the corner between Mai Thi Luu Street and Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street, District 1.
