Visitors to the Just Writing My Name Saigon exhibition can see photos featuring diversified graffiti works created on many streets in Saigon, and can also buy them at reasonable prices.

Giants Step was founded by curator Vanessa Le and Vietnamese French graffiti artist Suby One. Vanessa Le studied fine art in Singapore, Japan, and Thailand before coming back Vietnam to host many contemporary art programs in HCMC.

Suby One has gained his reputation in the field of graffiti in France. He returned to Vietnam last year to develop this kind of art in the country. Since then Suby One has gathered graffiti artists in Saigon to work under one roof. Giants Step is operated as an art space for local young artists whose artworks are chosen by curators to exhibit at many events and activities without a fee. It is expected that the venue will contribute to the development of contemporary art in Vietnam.

The exhibition runs until May 17.
