The Art

The theme of this mural is to convey a message about the solidarity root spirit of Vietnam and cultural diversity. Nguoi Da commented about how it is important to "honor the solidarity spirit of the Vietnamese people, especially the recent difficult times". The playful colors in the art "express the cheerful spirit of solidarity and the spirit of the nation's cohesion" according to Cresk.

This art also has a special meaning to the artists as this paint has the power of filter and clean the air of the environment around it, which is a potent message of environmental protection along with the diversity of Vietnamese culture.
