Beyond the glitz and glamour of the city’s magic, Saigon has always had its urban artists and its walls were long a haven for aspiring painters, graffiti artists, creatives, and young innovators alike.
Last month Drip’In held a showcase running until January 5th, 2021 at N21 in District 3 of HCMC to highlight works of all sizes that created a singular artistic journey, with the ultimate goal of forming a cohesive link between street art, the urban landscape, and the public.
This month, DRIP’IN kicks off its Street Art celebration with “House of paint- Covert it all “ a major exhibition promoting Street art artists, but also an event where art meets social responsibility for a unique fundraising event for the benefit of Poussière de Vie an ONG helping disadvantaged people and children in Vietnam.
For this event, the challenge was to bring together — in an unexpected place of unusual proportions — artists from the urban art world for a monumental and ephemeral exhibition in the heart of the city. Dominique Mourey, founder of Drip’In, invited artists from the emerging local and international urban art scene to paint their creations in a space unlike most have ever experienced as graphic designer: a house in District 2 of HCMC intended to disappear shortly.
The physical scale of the exhibit alone would have made it a challenge for most anyone, but not for Drip’In who set out to source all the art directly from creators with the goal to be on view quickly. The list includes Daos, the rising star from Vietnam, Subyone from France, Mate 2 from the UK, and GTHVN, all of whom started making their work on the house as if they had something urgent to share with the world upon a soon-disappearing canvas. With just one month of work to paint the full house, featuring all in all 110 liters of paint and 185 sprays, Drip’In returns with a monumental premier.
On November 14, in addition to this ephemeral show, a collection of limited-edition art will also be for sale. Street Art aficionados can add to their collections while also helping the community, as works will be auctioned, let’s not forget it, for the benefit of Poussière de vie.
During the event attendees will also have the chance to experience a series of live performances, from Hip Hop dancing to DJ sets by DJ Goosebumps, a multi-award winning DJ in Europe, and DJ Minoto to keep the party going, as well as live video mapping and light shows without forgetting Stefan Leyshon, the famous magician. All of this and more for an Art ephemeral night.
