[Photos] Dull Saigon Alley Gets A Graffiti Facelift

In bustling downtown Saigon, where it seems like development dictates aesthetics, alleyway 15B on Le Thanh Ton Street is among the few public places in the city where art is accessible to residents of Saigon that might not normally go to traditional art venues.

Known as ‘graffiti alley’, this corridor has become an open gallery for graffiti, a typically underground artistic style.

According to Zing, 2 years ago, a group of young, persistent artists were able to convince the alley’s authority to transform the dull, green-mossed walls into a lively, colorful passageway. Ever since, this alley has been coated with different layers of paint and graffiti styles – a little corner of Saigon’s urban culture.
