Uplifting the Covid-19 prevention spirit with Street Art
With strong desire to contribute to the prevention and combat against the Covid-19 pandemic, Graffiti artist Le Long has conveyed the message "Stay strong - Let's stay home" through his Graffiti paintings.
With the permission of the house owner, Graffiti artist Le Long has turned the entire outer wall of a villa (in Van Phu urban area, Ha Dong) with an area of more than 300m2 into an unique mural with the theme of COVID-19 pandemic prevention

The idea of the Graffiti paiting flashed into Long’s mind by the end of March 2020 and he made it come true within a month when the whole country was fighting against the pandemic and applying social distancing
About 500 - 600 paint bottles and paint sprays with all colors, even cranes have been used by Long and his colleagues in the creation process. According to Luu Thi Minh Chau, the owner of the villa, the artist spent 8-18 hours drawing every day.
The villa attracts many curious and excited passers-by looking at the images of SARS-CoV-2 viruses and meaningful messages “Stay strong - Let’s stay home” transformed through the Graffiti style.
Other than this famous work, Long's team also performed a series of graffiti art with Covid-19 theme at many places around Hanoi such as Lam Ha Street (Long Bien), in Quan Ganh (Thuong Tin), Mau Luong (Ha Dong), Trinh Dinh Cuu street (Hoang Mai)...
The painting calls everybody to wear facemask.

With these project, Le Long and his group members want to change people’s impression of Graffiti art, from the prejudice of being just the "doodle" to understanding it as an art form able to deliver message of humanistic meaning. In addition, these Graffiti works appeal to the solidarity and responsibility of each individual in the prevention and control of Covid-19
Moreover, with the aim of sharing with the country in this difficult time, artists across the country have had many art projects contributing to propagating people to implement the regulations on Covid-19 prevention and control.
