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.
Trees and counting.
With the strong story of celebration and honoring of Vietnamese roots and culture, Cresk and Nguoi Da helped plant 300 trees in Ho Chi Minh City, the equivalent of 15 soccer fields, a symbol of the air-cleaning power of this mural. Converse believes it has an opportunity to drive creativity with intent, share powerful stories of All Stars doing that around the globe, and renew its impact by creating fresh air in its communities through Converse City Forests.See Our Global Impact
